Mary and family, My deepest condolences to you and your family. Many memories of our Sunday morning CCD classes and mass together. My parents thought a lot of your family . I know it’s a difficult part of life losing parents but know you are being prayed through these times by your friends who adore you! We sure were blessed to have such wonderful parents to teach us how to love unconditionally and teach us the value of a faith to carry us through these times. Love you
