A Memorial Mass will be held in St. Lucy Catholic Church, 3101 Drexel Ave., on Monday, November 17, 2008, at 1 p.m. with Rev. Mark R. Jones officiating. There will be time to visit with the family at the church on Monday from noon – 1 p.m. In lieu of flowers, memorials to the Epilepsy Foundation have been suggested.

A heartfelt note of thanks to the entire staff of the All Saints Cardiovascular Intensive Care Unit for the compassionate care and support given during this most difficult week. God bless all of you!
