Sharon and Clayton,
My deepest sympathies on the loss of your dear mother. Know that my thoughts and prayers are with you at this difficult time. I didn’t get to know your mom too much but I did pick up that she was very kind and personable. In case I can’t go to the funeral Mass tomorrow know that I’ll be thinking of you and your family.
Sincerely in Emmanuel,
Sr Claire
