Dear Danny and Family, I cannot put into words how sorry I am for your loss. I have many good memories of Mary Jo, from our days in religious education, being in the same First Holy Communion and Confirmation classes and throughout all our years as classmates. She will be so very deeply missed, but our faith tells us her life is changed, not ended, and we will be with her one day in eternity. May your cherished memories bring you comfort and peace. Hugs and prayers, Karen Flick Crossland 🙏🙏
