    Dear Katheryn,

    You have been in my thoughts and prayers since Mal called to let me know of your Dee’s passing. I wish I could give you a hug in person, but can’t make the trip to Boston at this time in our lives.

    My prayers are with you and all his loved ones. I hope you’ll find great comfort in your happy memories of him. I know from my own experience that those memories become even more golden with time.

    I have the picture of you, Dee, brother Bob, and me on my screen-saver. This was taken at Frank Maguire’s 75th birthday party a couple of years ago.

    My thoughts, prayers, and deepest sympathy to you and all the family and friends who loved him. Both Cal and Mal told me what a wonderful wife you were, and I pray for your comfort.

    Love, Muriel MacKinnon Hallet

    Dear Dad,
    I know this a place for people to write to the family, giving their thoughts and prayers, but today I’m going to by pass that because it’s your Birthday and I can see you one last time to wish you a Happy Birthday. I miss you so much. I wish I had spent time with you to catch on to some of that quick come back humor you had and the the uncanny wit that came with it. I’ll even take the advice that was given whether it was asked for or not!
    I love you so much Dad and miss talking with you . I still talk with you but the answers just aren’t the same.
    I hope you are taking care of things well up in Heaven. Hope they have a phone for you to call the city so you take care of things.
    Good Bye Dad,
    All My Love,
    Your Daugher,
