I am the husband of Mary Berg McNally.
I had the pleasure of spending time with Norene at a couple of family parties and 2 brunches with Karen and Mary.
She was an adorable lady. She always told me how handsome I was, so I knew she was a good woman.
Due to work obligations, I could not attend either service. I wish I could have spent some time with the family, in person. My Irish, Catholic parents are rolling in their Graves because I didn't show up at the wake.
My wife, Mary, has said Mrs. Gries was like a second mom to her.
Please, accept my apologies and condolences.
Mac, Bernard McNally.
