  4. My condolences to Vic and David. I apologize for not attending the services for Midge. I just found out about it. I am so sorry, she was a great lady!

  5. Very sorry to hear about Midge–I always had a lot of fun with her. Given our Irish heritage, inevitably some of these laughs took place at Bracken family gatherings that weren’t always for a happy occasion…but all the more appreciated at times like those. My sympathy to her brothers, family and friends.

  6. Dave Sorry to hear about Midge I will keep her in my thoughts and prayers
