hi crisanne....just wanted to send you a note to tell you how sorry I am to hear about your mom. I always remember when you and your family lived on Meadow Rd, and on Clover Rd. And I remember your mom from school, too. She was a wonderful lady who always tried to keep me thinking about my future after Westhill. Hope you will find peace in knowing she is in a better place, and she left a good impression on more people than you could ever know.
Hope you are well. Tell your dad I said hello. I will always remember him singing "Martha Martha, Martha Martha...." ask him if he remembers me!
Take care. With love,
Martha Dolan

Crisanne, I am very sad to hear about your loss. I never met your mom but I know you, and that's saying a lot. I am 'here' for you and I will do my daily novena for the whole family. She is in good hands!
