Mary Grace,
We were all so sorry to her of the passing of your Mom. Mrs. Canavan was a loyal friend to my Mom (Scotty) and one of the Golden Girls. Our family learned to make the best manicotti under the patient supervion of your Mom. We all admired her strong faith and spirit. You are all in our prayers.

Marygrace, David, I was able to visit your Mom with my daughters this past year at the Jewish Home. They had never had the opportunity to meet “Aunt Marie” before since we live so far away. We all had a nice visit and we are sad to hear the news of Aunt Marie’s passing. Please accept my heartfelt condolences.
