We were so sorry to learn of your mother's death. Mary was in my high school class (56) and your Dad was in Philip's high school class. She was a lovely person and I have fond memories of her from our high School days. Although I had not seen her in a while I always knew we were friends. Her passing makes me sad, as it does all of you. May your memories of her sustain you in this sorrowful time. May God comfort all of you.
