Kathie and Debbie. My mom and I are so sorry to hear of the passing of your mother. My mom enjoyed sharing a blanket in the bleachers with her during all those Thursday night dance sessions at Cohasset Winter Gardens. Our thoughts are with you.

Mrs. Sullivan sounds like a real special and loved woman. No doubt she will be lovingly remembered by all who knew her. My condolences to the family and my hopes that knowing how precious she is to God, that he keeps her safely in his memory as well, can bring some comfort to the family in this difficult time. (Psalm 116:15)
