  1. Dave, I hope you find comfort in your memories and in our faith at the time of your Grandma’s passing.

  2. Hello Peggy,
    I will fondly remember the countless 8:00 Sunday Masses. My mom and I sat in the row ahead of your mom. Her spunkiness and love she spread made her a very special person. She will be sorely missed.
    My prayers are with you and your family.
    Love, Gail

  3. I’m thinking of you, Peg. Remember that in your time of loss, you can find comfort in the knowledge that your mom and dad are together again and enjoying fantastic reunions with their parents, relatives and friends. They’re whole and happy now, and they’ll be there to greet us when we arrive.
    Love you, Peg

  4. My thoughts and prayers have been with the family of Helen O’Neil. I never had the pleasure of meeting Helen in person, but I heard many wonderful things about her from my dear friend Peggy. I viewed the video and was deeply touched by Helen’s beautiful smile. I see Peggy in her mom’s smile and know that Helen will live forever in the hearts of those she touched during her lifetime.

  5. Peg,
    I will always have a warm spot in my heart for our ‘Mama O’Neil’. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family at this very difficult time. I hope your beautiful memories will sustain you now. I love you,

  6. Please know that you are not alone today. Those who cared for Helen share in your loss. We hope that each new day will continue to heal your heart.
