I have wonderful memories of Jack and me pulling into the driveway on Christmas morning, greeted by the ‘Cabry kids.’ We’d go inside and there was a spread of delicious food on the table that Joan had found the time to make. We’d have a cup of tea together and she would show me all the handmade cards and decorations the kids had made over the years that she cherished and brought out every Christmas. They were worth more to her than any store-bought ornament.
I loved the way Joan would always use the word ‘My’ when she talked about her children. ‘My Michael.’ ‘My Mary Anne.’ ‘My Maureen.’ ‘My Patty.’ ‘My Colleen.’ “My Seany.’ ‘My Dennis.’ They may be middle-age adults now, but they were ‘her children.’
She has given them a beautiful legacy of love and warmth and humor.
With sympathy and love,

Maureen Baer and Cabry Family,
Please accept my deepest condolences. My thoughts and prayers are with you. Rejoice in the Hope of the Resurrection. And…in just a little while, “He will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.” Rev 21:4. Continue to have faith and you will see your dear Mother in the resurrection.
