Dear Iris:
My sincere condolences to you and your family on the loss of your Mother. I only met your mother once, but I felt I knew her through your stories of her. You and Molly have dedicated your lives to caring for your mom, and I’m sure you will miss her terribly. But you can take comfort in knowing that she and your father are together now, and that all is well. Take care of each other, and may God bless you and all your family, today and everyday.

Dear Molly and Iris:
My deepest sympathies go out to you and your family. Please accept my condolences; just know that I am here for you. Please do not hesitate to reach out, especially during this difficult time.

Dear Paiva family,

We were saddened to hear about the passing away of your mother Clara into God’s presence. We knew her from the time you came here to St. John’s as a quiet, gentle, firm and comforting presence at your home, along with your father. Molly and Iris will be missing her presence so dearly at their home, though they will be comforted to know that she has gone to be with her deceased husband Joseph. We pray for God’s presence to comfort all the family members. Sincerely

Melly and Arisi Swamidas
