My condolences to Cathy's family. She was a neighbor of ours on Constant Ave and Kissam Road.... many memories of hide and seek in their yard, St. Bernard's on the loose, and D'Onofrio pizza late on a summer evening. May the many menories of Cathy bring your heart joy and a measure of solace during this time of sadness. MICHAEL COMER

There are no words for such an unimaginable loss. It has been such a joy in my life to have you as my friend. I will never forget you.
Our hearts go out to Don and the entire Cunniff family. " May the road rise up to meet you. May the wind always be at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face; the rains fall soft upon your fields and until we meet again, may God hold you in the palm of his hand". With love, Susan and Kevin Brown
