    To my dear Colleen (who is my “Mom” in America), Donna and the entire Kelly family; please accept my condolences and love at this very difficult time.

    Your mother was definitely a very special lady! Your family was blessed to have her presence for so many, many, many wonderful years. She will be fondly missed by all. It is very hard to miss such a loving and kind Mother, but God knows best. Please cherish the good times and memories of times you had together. Those times are priceless. Colleen, you are just a replica of your Mom in character, moral, integrity and kindness, therefore, all of us still have your Mom in our midst, which we thank God for. May her soul rest in perfect peace. Amen.
