The kindness that both you and your beloved Shirley showed toward my children, back when they were students at Archbishop Williams and working at Sunday night Bingo, will always be fondly remembered. She loved talking about her greatest love, her family.
With deepest sympathy,
Maureen Reardon (Mother of Dan, Lauren and Terence)
