Recollections & Sympathy For the Family

I was very sorry to hear of your dad's passing, Kathy. My deepest sympathy to you and your family.

Ann and family, Please know my sympathy for you all at this time of loss. Know that Bill and you all are in my prayer. Of course I recall you all from Edgewood Ave, Blackinton.
I had already left for the brothers but when I visited it was
always good to catch up with the Kings. The last time I saw you all was at my mom's wake, but also remember a time when I stopped in a car to say hello and you had me and mom drive a few houses more to visit you. Know I remember you all fondly. Jack McMahon
