Kathy, I am so sorry for your loss and I know how much it hurts to lose your mom even though you know she is in a better place. Kristine, Olivia and Kathy, I saw for myself what good care you gave your grandmother and mother. I am proud of each of you for the care you gave her and am so thankful for the chance to have seen her, read and sing to her. I loved her so much since the first time I met her at Millbury District Nursing and had so much fun with her. I'm grateful to God to have been part of her life. We also shared our faith and prayed for each other. I would often call for her political views as well. She was a woman of statue and greatly to be admired.

Kathy, I am so sorry to see of your Mom's passing. I have been so involved in moving that I had no idea till I just looked at the Tribune today(6/22). She was such a sweet lady and we had just talked about her when we met. She did live a wonderful life & had a beautiful family. Nevertheless, it does not make it any easier for you. My deepest sympathy goes out to you and your family. You are in my thoughts & prayers.
