So very sorry for your mother’s passing. She was a very special lady. Saw her every Sunday and week days at Mass where she was always prepared to lector. St Michael the Archangel Parish lost a very good teacher and role model of faith. Will keep you all in prayer as you struggle through these difficult times.

Dear Judy and Laura,
When I began teaching at SMS in 1975, it was your mother who was my mentor. I learned so much from her about the mass, the rosary and just good solid teacher information. Since reading of her passing, I have revisited many memories of her in those days when we were teaching partners. I knew her to be a strong lady and dedicated to her faith. I did attend her funeral today BUT because of Covid, I was in the furthest back corner of the church. I wanted you to know I do have fond memories of her and am grateful for all that she taught me. I wish you both well as you grieve her passing. God Bless, Cheryl Post
