    I am so sorry to hear of your Mothers passing. She was so dear to my Mother who passed the following week. I have fond memories of visiting on “My Street”. I shared memories of Charlestown with my Mother the day before she passed. Memories of your mother always brought up a story or two.

    I am so sorry to hear about your mom passing. I just found out today. I feel horrible I have thought about your mom and wondered if she still lived in the house, I still have her old stove and use it every day.

  3. Dear Mike & Family – Please accept my deepest condolences on the loss of your Mom, Pat. I did not have the pleasure of meeting her but, having read her history, I can see that she was a very caring person. We have to appreciate our nurses as they do so much to help and comfort people when they are in a hospital. It seems she had a very full and rewarding life but it is always a shock to lose a parent no matter at what age. May your family and friends comfort you at this time. You are in my prayers. – Lesley Murphy

  4. Patricia and Tom our condolences. The true legacy and appreciation for Patricia is reflected in the wonderful person of her daughter. In this celebration of her life I think she would appreciate the joke/quote by Yogi Berra –
    “you should always go to other people’s funerals otherwise they won’t come to yours”
    Our rememberance is to St Judes in her honor.
