Dear Bobby and Jackie,
I was so sad to hear about your beautiful mom passing. I loved your mom and have so many fond memories of her. Unfortunately I won’t be able to make it to her service. I’m just getting over pneumonia and the doctor said not to go out for another month and not to be around a lot of people. I’ll say some extra prayers for her and all the family at this difficult time.

Mary Burns my grand mother and GRAND she was... she was awesome in so many ways..!! She was an amazingly giving and thoughtful person - she was a self proclaimed “ordinary” south side Irish catholic woman who lived and extraordinary life and touched so many people in so many positive ways all with love and respect. I will forever be grateful for her love and what she has meant to me in my life... until we meet again... please tell Jesus I said Hello !! Love you so much Grannie!! Miss you so much already ...
