Dear John and Family,
I was saddened to hear of Cathy's death. I talked with her last week as we often did while grocery shopping. We spent many good days working in CMC NURSERY. Cathy's Funeral Mass was beautiful and a special send off for her to heaven.
God Bless You All.
Sincerely,
Patti Montalbano

John and Bill, I want to express my deep sorrow for your most tragic and sudden loss. We never know what’s in store for us day to day and have a hard time understanding why these things happen. Tragedies like this only serves to reinforce that we need to live for the moment and make sure people we care about know how we feel because they may be taken from us in a moment.
