Dear Bill (and Family),
My deepest sympathies to you during this difficult time. During the MANY car rides to/from the Abbey during our teen years where your mom served as chauffeur extraordinaire, I always remembered her as a sweet, kind and upbeat woman. I don't think I ever heard her say anything negative about anything!!
I had the blessing of visiting with her a couple of times at St. Elizabeth's in 2016 when my mom was also there. "Mrs. Drobyski" hadn't changed a bit. She was still the same lovely woman of decades ago, albeit a bit older.
Great peace and grace to you and your family in your loss,
Bill Lero, MD
