Dear Joyce Family,

Please accept my deepest sympathy on the loss of your mom. When I worked with Kathy Mullen in town, I remember your mom teaching us the fine art of shopping in Saks. I always enjoyed being with her.

My thoughts and prayers are with you.

Paddy, Judy and Christopher,
I am so sorry for the loss of your mother.
I will always remember Aunt Kate as a classy lady. She always made everyone feel welcomed and loved. She always had that beautiful warm smile when I spoke with her. I'll miss that.
I'm sure Uncle Eddie was at the "Gates of Heaven" waiting to meet her. They will forever be at peace together.
I will be praying for you through this time of sorrow. Over time, the sadness will be replaced with joyous memories. You will then be able to celebrate her life and thank our God, that he gave her to you, as your sweet wonderful Mother.

Love and Prayers,
Mary Ellen Hedderman
