- My most sincere condolences to Tim and his family on the passing of their Mom. I remember her as a kind, sweet lady. Bless you all.
- Dear Lenane family,
You had a very good mother and father. The last time I saw Paul and Mary was at St. Patrick's day at St. Rose 4 years ago, Paul donated Mary's organ to us for our hall. God bless their souls and I will have a mass said at St. Rose.
