Peggy and girls,

I was so very saddened to hear of Michael's passing. I only saw the two of you briefly over the years but he was always the same - smiling with a genuine hello! I remember that we baptized our babies at Sacred Heart Church on the same day many years ago. I know he will be missed and I am keeping you and your girls in my prayers and asking God to bring you comfort and healing.

God Bless,

Patricia
