Mary, I was so saddened to hear of your dad's passing. He was a true gentleman, a stellar man. Anytime I saw him, he would acknowledge me and give me a hug. I will miss seeing his smile at Mass. I'm sorry I wasn't there for you, I just found out this past weekend.
My Mother and I wish to express our heartfelt condolences and sadness on the loss of our friend and neighbor of 11 years, Jim Callanan. We will miss our chats across the yard, catching up on the latest news. Jim was a great comfort to us during my Mom's illness in 2012 and he always had time for a wave and a smile. We know that his greatest adventure has just begun in his "homegoing" to Heaven. May God bless his family and loved ones. Jim, we'll see you again, one day, in our Lord's Kingdom. Katherine and Cynthia Owers
