    Dear Jill,
    My sincere condolences to you with the loss of your dear mother Gloria. I attended Gloria and Paul’s wedding and memorable reception. When your dad was dying, Gloria called me to administer the sacrament of the sick at the nursing home.With tears streaming down, Gloria accompanied me at that painful moment. I celebrated your dad’s funeral at St. Anthony of Padua, Revere and his burial at Holy Cross Cemetery. May the promise of Easter be hers. Rest in Peace.
