Online Condolences


  1. Jimmy and Christine,I remember your mom when I was young and my dad would take us kids over to your house to visit your dad and her,when you were very young.

    They were good times,and I will always remember her and your dad joking around.

    I so sorry that she is gone,and you are in our prayers

  2. Jimmy and Kristen: Your mom is finally at peace as she begins her new journey from above. Know that she has not left you – she is just guiding you both through your own pathways from a different vantage point.

    Our deepest sympathy,
    Cousin Colleen (Richard) and her family

  3. I remember your mom best when your mom was a mother, first of babies then of growing children. Nothing lit up her face like talking about her children – you were the light of her life. There was no detail of your lives that she did not find notable. She doted on you.

    I am so sorry for your loss, and the rest of us also lost a woman of note. She had the Irish gift of the tongue, and I wish I had heard more of it.

    Take good care.

  4. Fond

  5. Jimmy and Christine,
    I am so sorry to hear about your loss. I have fun memories of your mom. You are in my thoughts and prayers.
