You provided support to put groceries on the tables of thousands of seniors over the years. Mercy Brown Bag Program participants are grateful for the love you shared.

“Embarrassed to say it been about 65 years but I remember basketball games on the school yard at Lourdes. I don't know how old the picture is but I'd recognize you anywhere. See you in heaven.
“Condolences to all those who knew and loved Larry. May you all find peace in God's promise that you will see you Brother, Uncle, Great Uncle, and Friend again in paradise. May the God of all comfort give you the strength you need to navigate through these trying times.
“Thinking of Larry O brings back so many happy memories. He sure will be missed.
“I've thought of Larry many times over the years but sadly lost contact with him. Wonderful memories of our grammer school days. May he rest in peace.
“Rest in Peace, Larry "O". What wonderful memories I have of growing up with you, your sister Jackie and your Mom and Dad.
