I was so sorry to hear of Mary’s passing.  She and I worked together in the 70’s at Watt & Shand.  I’ll always remember her smile, she was so much fun to work with.  Your family is in my thoughts and prayers.

Kate, I am so verysorry to read about the passing of your mom.  She was such a sweet lady.  I remember her well from our old St Joe days.  Everytime I would make it back for mass and I saw her she would always talk to me and ask me how things were.  She was also very nice to my mom in her later years.  My thoughts are with you and your entire family.  Mick Kolb
