  1. Dear Kathy,
    I’m so sorry for your loss. Fran brought so much love and company to my Mom at St. Martha’s. I will always remember her sweet smile and kind words for all our family and your love, devotion and care for Fran as well as your strong advocacy to ensure she was always well cared for. We miss her very much; the room seems so empty without her. Thanks also for all your kindness with Mom. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.

  3. Vince, Kathy, John and Matthew,
    May you try to find some peace during this difficult time. My only thought right now is that she is reunited with your dad and having margaritas & daiquiris on a heavenly patio with my mom. Much love always.

  4. Dear Kathy,
    So sorry to see this sad news. Sending my heartfelt condolences to you and your family!
    In the Jewish religion we often say “May her memory be a blessing” which seems appropriate for you. I know you were a devoted daughter and did everything you could for you Mom. She will Rest In Peace now and hopefully you will thrive on the wonderful memories that will be with you forever!
    Love, Lois

  5. Dear Vince, Kathy and Family,
    I am truly sorry for the loss of your beautiful Mom. She made all my flowers for myself and my bridesmaids and of course the church. She made you feel so happy after you talked to her. Such a sweet personality and I know your Dad was waiting for her. Cherish all your memories because you can look back and smile.
