My Irish angel, you are with the leprechauns dancing on a pot of gold. I will hear your girlish giggles in my mind. I will miss my yearly St. Patrick’s day card. I will feel beautiful because that’s what you told me so many times. I will treat your son like my family and watch over him. I will miss how you wrapped me in love every time we chatted over tea. My Irish angel, may you rest in peace in a field of shamrocks.

Thom, Amanda and Kelsea,
My prayers are with each of you. Mrs. Hamel was a treasure. She was a angel on earth. So kind, gracious and loving. I will never forget how she made me feel so welcomed whenever I would visit Thom during our high school years and beyond. She even remember me when I was to visit her at the Assisted Living home. She will greatly missed here on earth. 🙏🏾🙏🏻💚

Florence was one of the first people we met when we moved across the street. She was always friendly and sweet. I know that she has had considerable health issues in the past years, so I hope that her family and friends are comforted in the belief that she is once again healthy and with many of those she loves. My condolences and love to Amanda and Kelsea.
