Dear Maureen,
My thoughts are with you at this difficult time. I hope you find comfort in warm memories of your mother and from friends and family around you. You were so lucky to have been able to spend the last year or so with her. That was special. Take care of yourself & Bob.

Hugs to you,

We will miss Connie very much. She was a wonderful neighbor and Cougar supporter. We are so sorry to miss her service, but are remembering her while here in Ireland, especially when we ate at O'Neill's Pub. I promised her I would kiss the Blarney Stone for her, and will be doing that in a few days.

We love you Connie, and our sympathy to all the family.
Gregg & Judy
