  1. Dear Linda, Mr. Lydon & Family,

    We are so sorry for the loss of Mrs. Lydon. I remember in the old days I would see her walking by. She would always stop and say hello or wave with a smile. Such a nice family.

    You are all in our thoughts and prays.

    Love, Kathy (Dame), Paul & Domenic Fierro.
