Mrs. Cain impacted my life immensely when I decided to leave St. Joseph's Hospital School of Nursing. She told me in what feild I would find my calling. She was correct of course. Later I did obtain a degree in Registered Nursing after my degree in Human Service. She was an amazing teacher, advisor, and friend. I've thought of her and spoken of her over these fourth something years. I am sure she will be missed by so many. My sincerest condolences on you loss. I have no doubt she has found her place in Heaven.

My deepest sympathy on the loss of your mother, grandmother aunt. I have fond memories seeing Mrs. Cain in the huge sunny garden beside the house with a wave and huge smile when saying hello as I visited the horses with my sisters and brother. I continue to have wonderful memories of the whole family, living close by the family home and walking often with my dog.
I wish all of you much Peace and the Love of each other to sustain you.

I will always remember cousin Mary and her mom, Aunt Frances, as having wonderfully joyful spirits. Their big smiles and laughter lit up the room. They were the kindest, dearest people, and it was a pleasure to be in their company. My grandfather, Frank, was Uncle Tony's brother, and my mom, Monica, was Mary's first cousin. Mary has now gone to join the rest of her wonderful family in a finer dimension, and I'm sure she will be missed by her family members still on earth. She is a beautiful soul who has left happy memories with those who were fortunate to know her.

Mary and my mom grew up together on Bridgman St. Mom always talked about Mrs Schwenklers cakes. Then they both ended up in West Elmira with 8 kids each how ironic. Sincere sympathy to the family.

I have fond memories of Mr. and Mrs. Cain, their garden, and the horses. Mrs. Cain always had a great smile. Johnny and siblings, I am so sorry to hear about your mom's passing. She was a wonderful woman.

Dear Margie, John and all the Cain family,
I'm sending you my deepest sympathy and prayers for the loss of your wonderful mother.
My young memories of walking to the Town Hall or just walking by your house are of seeing your mom and her incredible smile. She was so accomplished and such an inspiration. Her gardens were breathtaking! May your memories get you through this tough time. And may your mother rest eternally in God's arms.
