    Father Mike, Our deepest Condolences for your dear Mother’s passing. She was a beautiful woman both inside and out, always greeting others with her warm and contagious smile. She often sat behind us for Sunday mass at St. Ignatius and whenever you included her in your homily we were blessed to hear her chuckle. May she Rest in Peace and continue to inspire and guide your way and those of your parishioners.
