Mary Grace and family, Thinking of you and your family. What a gift she gave you by being with you and enjoying the activities of your family. So many wonderful memories.
Hang in there and we will talk soon. You know Bob was there to welcome her into Heaven.
I was so sorry to read about Regina’s passing. I work with her for many years at NEIU. Since her retirement, I would not run into her often, but always enjoyed our conversations when our paths crossed. I just wanted all of you to know that my thoughts and prayers are with you, and, again, I am so sorry for your loss.

Mary Grace and Tommy, please know you are in our hearts and thoughts through these days. Our brother Jerry called and Barbara’s daughter, Roseann, emailed to let us know about the loss of Gina. We were all saddened as she was such a loving part of the events in our lives and she stayed close to Mother and Barbara and family and when we would go back, we knew she was a support. She will be missed. We will be in touch, take good care,

Dear Mary Grace, Tommy and Dottie:
We are so saddened to hear of Gina’s passing. She had been so much a part of my “growing up” years in Scranton – she was often with us for Burke family celebrations, graduations, holidays and just casual get-togethers…all fond memories for me!
My husband Jerry and I offer our deepest sympathy and will keep all of you, Gina’s family, in our prayers.
With love, Cathy and Jerry Sienkiewicz (Charlotte, NC)
