Thoughts & Prayers

Posted by Joseph Galante on
On behalf of the family of Ann MacAvoy (my dear departed sister) we would like to express our sympathy to Maureen’s family. Maureen was such a wonderful friend to Ann and was such a sweet person. She loved her children and grandchildren so much and talked about all of you all the time. She was so proud of each one of you. May she Rest In Peace. My hope is that she and my sister have reunited their friendship in heaven and are catching up over a cup of tea. Love and prayers for your entire family.
