My sincerest condolences to the entire family. Mary and my mother were both born in the same year, married wonderful husbands and raised large families. It's no wonder I felt right at home with Mary and John and all the Cornely's, particularly during my years at Saint Peter's. I am grateful for the blessings of Mary's kindness. Prayers go out to all. Father Glenn Hartman.
