I am thinking of all of you at this sad time. Mr. Cooney was such a good, kind man. I always loved to see him at everything his grandchildren did. He will be very missed by all of his St. Pius family.

Another bright light has been extinguished on earth and has moved on to the loving arms of our Heavenly Father. He always had such a great smile and was so sweet. It was a privilege and a pleasure to have known him. I am so sorry for your loss.
