To our beautiful Queen of Birchwood Dr., we are all going to miss you so much. You have been a mentor, mother and friend to me and my family and many others on our street. We will always cherish your words of wisdom, your generosity and your beautiful laugh and all the treasured gifts and words of encouragement you have given my children over the years, they both loved you so much. We will be sure to keep track of Patrick and keep him out of trouble, especially making sure he stays of the roof. To your family may the beautiful memories you have given them, bring them comfort until you all meet again. God Bless!

My condolences to the McCarthy family, their friends and acquaintances for the loss of this kind woman. Patricia, Pat and their children were economically much better off than I was while growing up. Yet, I never once got the feeling they felt better than the poor paperboy; quite the contrary, actually - one of the few families to offer a cold drink on a hot day (always did). Kudos for a life lived well and righteous, Patricia, Pat and daughters. Best wishes moving forward to all!

Caren ,Shannon, and Lynn- I’m so sorry for the loss of your mom. Although she lived a very long life, it’s so difficult at any age to lose our parents. May she Rest In Peace and my thoughts are with you all.
