    My friend of 45+ years is gone and I am so sad. From our years at Holy Name to becoming adults and working at jobs, getting married and having kids and grandkids, we hardly missed a beat and kept our friendship going. I am so happy we had lunch together just three weeks ago. You shared your pain and heartache with me knowing you didn’t have much time left on this earth. I am a better person because of your friendship. I will see you again one day……

    So sorry for your loss Jim. Your mom has completed her circle of life and is no doubt dancing with your dad right now. Comfort and prayers for you and your family during this time of sorrow.

    Bridget and family, you are in our prayers. Find comfort in knowing you shared the journey with your mother. She knew you were present.

    Bridget and James
    When hearing of your mom’s illness and passing I wanted to first send you my deepest condolences. A mother’s loss is most deeply felt, but her love is most strongly remembered. I am sorry for all of you. I wanted also, to tell you my memory of Beth at Holy Name. We didn’t stay connected through the years, as Mary Beth did, but Beth was certainly one, I wished I had. Your mom was kind, accepting of anyone, and greeted everyone with her contagious smile. She was fun and the twosome of Beth and Mary Beth were hilarious to be around because there was always laughter. She leaves a warm memory for all of us. I was blessed to have had her in my life for those four years. My prayers are with you and your families.

    I am so sorry about your loss. I was hoping to share some encouragement from the bible that is found at acts 24:15 and that mentions that there will be a resurrection of both the righteous and unrighteous. So we have a beautiful hope of seeing our loved ones again. I hope this helps.
