My parents, Bernice and Dan Gallagher, were dear friends of Mary and Tom, so I like to think they're all together once again. Those Menominee girls accomplished so much in their careers and with their families. I like to think of them all at peace in beautiful Riverside Cemetery.

I worked with Mary at Christ Hospital. She was a joy to work with. My prayers are with her family at this time.

John and Linda - Thank you for for your continued dedication and efforts to assure your mom went to her reward in continued contact with friends and family.

It would be great to have a heavenly version of SKYPE!
God bless you and be with you all, Tom, Beth, Linda & John.

94! Quite an amazing life. I hope she and Uncle Tom are playing pinochle in heaven with Jack and Phyllis - laughing and happy. Good thoughts to all the Del Monte family.
