Memories Timeline


  1. Dearest Mary and family,
    To say that you had your dad for such a long time would be an understatement.

    You were there for him all the time and that should give you a warm feeling.

    I hope that the next few days weeks and months won’t be too difficult.

    My warmest condolences

    Johanna George Max and Gabi

  2. Dear Mary, Bob and Liz, You have suffered with him , but now Uncle Hugh is in the Presence of God! I am adding him to my prayers for a Plenary Indulgence and Perpetual Membership of Masses. Uncle Hugh was great to Sue and I when he came to our Father Daughter Dance at the Academy of St Joseph in Brentwood and kept us dancing with Dad and him!
    We loved meeting Uncle Hugh and Aunt Seena in Florida with our parents. He and I talked recently and
    on the day of our 50th Anniversary Party in 2019. God bless all of the family ! What a great man he was!
