Condolence & Memory Journal

Frank: You had two wonderful parents who deserved the long lives they had. We would be with you today, but I am recovering from October 30 surgery and cannot risk complications. I've never forgotten the guys of sixty-eight and the parents who sent them to me.

My condolences to you on this sad occasion...I remember Mrs. C from our days at St. Mary's School. She and my Mom (who left us in August, and is also laid to rest in West Meadow) were in the Lady's Guild together.
