I read and saved your mother’s obituary. I think it’s all I’ve ever gotten to hear about your mom. One night, over coffee or booze, I would love to (responsibly) gather in celebration and hear more about your mom. I believe in passing along stories, memories... it keeps our loved ones names on lips here, with us. I plant a tree for my dad each year, and be happy to do that with any of you. Joe and Shayne have my number.Brunners, I love you. I’m so glad I’ve had the chance to know you more now, in adulthood, and to learn how much I like you! I grieve with you for the profound losses that you, and the world, have suffered in these past weeks and months. My heart broke with yours. Again, I send you my love. I am so sorry for the loss of your mom.

We are saddened by the loss of our wonderful neighbor Joanne. She was such a lovely woman and always welcomed our children when trick or treating during Halloween. We would see her at mass smiling face with our children at mass as we also belong to St. Peters Parrish. She volunteered so much of her time to the church when she was still able. May she rest peacefully and may you be comforted knowing she is now at peace in Heaven.Sincerely, Larry and Pam Patt
