Steve, Ron & Rick - I Am so sorry to hear of your mom’s passing. I am in Florida for the winter & could not attend her funeral mass at St Al’s. She was a fabulous person. I have so many great memories of her taking us to the beach in the hot summer months - from Hunting Rd. to Sherkston beach in the station wagon. I remember her beautiful cakes she decorated, gorgeous flower arrangements, and her beautiful smile & positive attitude! God bless her!!

Dear Steve, Ron and Rick,
Just today learned of your mom's passing. I am so very sorry. I have such sweet, pleasant memories of all the fun we had growing up with you all. I will always remember your mom's laugh and creativity (the decorated cakes and beautiful flower gardens and interior decorating to the nines) and zest for fun and all the field trips she took us on in the station wagon! She saved me from the undertow at Sherkston beach! I remember the garden plaque in your back yard: The kiss of the sun for warmth, the song of the birds for mirth, one is nearer God's heart in a garden than anywhere else on earth! I'm sure she's enjoying God's abundant gardens!
Sorry to have missed her mass and a chance to catch up with you all. Lifting up prayers for her and you and your families.
God Bless.

To Steve, Ron and Rick , she was so proud of all of you and the men you became. May she rest in peace and reunite with your Dad in heaven.
