Tony, Pat, and Louise, we are very sorry for your loss. It's always hard to find the right words to offer comfort and help lessen your sorrows; but in truth, only time can provide the tender healing mercies to help lighten the grief that now weighs on your shoulders. In the meantime, we hope that you can find comfort in reaching out to each other as a family; share those memories of Mary that brought you joy and know that her passing is not the end. For she will keep on living in your memories, in spirit, and in your hearts. Tony our family has always respected you, and dearly cherished having you as our neighbor and our friend; you and my father go back a long way that we consider you apart of our family as well as a friend. Please know that our door is always open for you if you need anything or just want someone to talk to.

With Sincere Regrets
