  1. Butch and Family,So sorry about your Dad. I saw him at Katies funeral and talked to him for a few minutes. He looked so frail then. I am not sure if you were at the rosary for Katie and I missed seeing you. I was sick Tue so could not get to rosary or funeral. I am so sorry for not comming. I would talk to Ernest and Katie lots of Saturday's after 4 Mass. I keep up with what was going on with everyone. If the were gone for a few weeks they had usually been to visit ya'll and grandkids. Ernest always had a tale to tell me about when they were younger, usually about my daddy.I still would look for them at 4 o'clock Mass these lase couple of years. Now I know where they are and how they are doing.Paula

  2. May God's love and peace bring you comfort during this difficult time of sorrow. You're all in my thoughts and prayers. Love, Tina
