Many prayers and much love to you, Tommy and Miriam, and to all of the family as you mourn the loss of this lovely lady. May God be with you as you grieve her loss, and may you rejoice in the knowledge that she is at Home with our Lord, safe in His arms.

The days ahead will bring sadness and bursts of memories, things you had forgotten but which you will treasure during the days ahead. Remember that as long as you have these memories, she lives in your hearts and as you pass them along she will continue to live in the lives of your son and grandsons.

Peace and love to all of those who knew and loved her through the years.
