Cathy,

My sincere condolences of the passing of your mom. I enjoyed working with you and her at St. Jose Elks back in the 1980's - 19990's of Friday nights.

May her memory always be a blessing to you and those who were fortunate to know her!

Our sympathy to the family. I have fond memories of rooting for the St. John's Irish, excellent hospitality, and joking with my Dad about being "kissing cousins." May all your wonderful memories help ease the sorrow of your loss.
