I am so sorry to hear of the passing of Mr Karrigan. He was the kindest, sweetest man. I loved how devoted he was to his catholic faith. And how he loved his family. He was a blessing to have known him & will be missed. I know he will be at peace & reunited with his wife whom he loved.

My prayers are for the repose of the soul of your dad. He was such a GOOD man, I don't know how much prayer he needs. But I'll pray for you four and your families to find solace.
The Gresses and the Lloyds go way back. Now she is gone and Grady has dementia and resides at St. Joseph of Harahan. I couldn't attend your dad's funeral because of Covid=19.
C.J. and Edlee are together again. May they rest in peace.

Highway Drive’s loss is Heaven’s gain…

Covid uncertainties and medical issues have precluded our physical presence, however, our thoughts and prayers are most certainly with you. We take solace in believing that Conrad and Edlee have been once again reunited in Heaven.

Your lifelong neighbors
The Pollet family. Joe, Cindy, Ashley, Trey, Jamie & Jackie
