To the family, my heartfelt condolences for your loss. Please find comfort in the knowledge that God promises to put an end to all the things that have plagued mankind for centuries including pain, suffering and death (Revelation 21:3,4). May these promises from God give you comfort now and real hope for the future. My deepest sympathy.

You certainly have earned your place in heaven. I enjoyed working with you on the many St Patrick & Raphael receptions we did for all the occasions we had . You were always there with happiness to share. I have thought of you many times since we left Williamstown. Rest In Peace. Jean & Arthur Lafave, Dedham, Ma
