Hi Carol
Mom and I were very sorry to hear about your mom’s passing. Please give our sympathies to your family. I have another funeral on Saturday I have to attend and mom isn’t venturing too far these days. She and I talked about some of the good times our parents had together. We come from good party stock! Love to have you come to McCarthy Place for a visit sometime soon. Thinking of you in the days ahead.
Barb & Esther

Dear Carol, John, Joanne and Stephen and families;
We are sorry to hear about the passing of your mother. Mom and I remember many times that we spent with the family years ago when we were young. We still remember when your parents bought the house in Baden and we helped to strip wall paper. My mother has dementia and is in a nursing home so she will be unable to attend but please accept our sympathy and know that we will keep you in our prayers.
