Jim, Sue, Rob, Sue and family Was so sad to hear the news of moms passing. Your mom and grandma was one special lady! We had just talked about her when Jim and Sue and family were up for our dinner a few weeks ago. She was one very classy lady and we were always proud to call her our aunt. She will be sorrowfully missed and please know that you have our heartfelt sympathy. Looking forward to seeing everyone Friday!!! All our love John, Karen and family

To Natalie’s family.

My sincere sympathies of the news of your mom’s passing. Your mom and my grandmother Dorothy Kinnane worked together at the State of MI Social Services Depart. They and a few other gals were the “Birthday Girls”. They would get together for their birthdays and do lunch. My grandmother thought a lot of Natalie. The times I met Natalie, she was always so nice. I always thought she had such a pretty name. My thoughts and prayers are with your family.
