  • Dear Lisa and family,
    I write with such a heavy heart. Marie was one of my dearest friends in high school. We have stayed in touch over the years and it was wonderful to share an evening with her this last fall at our 50th high school reunion. She looked the same and smiled and laughed all night. It is such a good memory. I am so sorry for your loss.
    Rest in peace, my friend.

  • DEAR Lisa….. Oct 2014 …had a delightful evening with and a chance to reconnect with your Mom…when we attended our reunion as graduates of Bishop Stang High Class of 64 Your Mom sat at our table of 8–the evening was spent discussing HOW could this be possible…50 years? Lots of laughter and good times now and in the past which we all enjoyed reminiscing about —although as I recall– the highlight and sparkle in your Mom’s eyes — was when she would speak of you… TRULY saddened to learn of your Mom passing — wish to send my deepest sympathy …May only the happiest of times— give you comfort during this difficult time…..Michelle
