I just received the announcement of your Mom's passing. I go back many years with your parents. I worked with your Mom when she was Guidance Counselor at Bishop Timon. Along with working with your Mom, Norm Kersch and I shared many dinners with your parents and later with your Mom. She was a great woman and a faithful friend. Your family is in my prayers.
Sr. Jeanne Thomas
