To All the Moore children,

May God give you the grace to go through the passing of your Mom. Your mother was a good friend of my aunt Grace O'Brien and my mother Helen Lonergan. I always saw Mary when I worked at Kent Hospital when she was visiting friends. I know you will miss her but now she is in a better place. God be with all of you.
