Roseanne and family, so difficult to lose the physical presence of someone you love so dearly. May the many treasured memories of your Mom comfort and give you peace. Take care.

I was very blessed to get to know Carmel this past year. As we started chatting each day in her room we come to realize that she had been a good friend with my grandmother and grew up with my other grandmother; as she chatted she realized that I was the little one that my grandmother would talk about and that she met my mother before she passed in her young life. We shared many memories of St. Patrick’s. I will truly miss Carmel and her beautiful smile. I will treasure the memories that she shared with me.
