I wish to express my sympathy to Chuck and family as well as to Margaret in the loss of your wife, mother, and sister,Kathleen. She and I were classmates at Sacred Heart for at least ten years, so I have many memories of our school days and the things we did with classmates such as Mary Kay Walrath, Phoebe Avery, Anne Maley,and boys of our class of 1955. I will keep all of you and Kathleen in my prayers. May she rest in peace.
