Bernie sorry for your loss.She was the mother of The Crescent.

Our condolences to all of you. May you all find a measure of comfort and peace in sharing many happy memories.

Mrs. Kavanagh was one of the sweetest and most sincere people I have ever known. When you spoke to her, she’d give you her full attention. She had a subtle sense of humor too and often expressed her great love of home and her children. She lived a long life and was well cared for in her last years.
To Bernie and family- may your memories of your mother live on in your hearts and minds.

I am so sorry for your loss, Bernie. I am keeping you, your family, and your mother in my prayers. May she rest in peace.
