Catherine Kiernan

To my cousins and their families, I extend my condolences on the loss of your mother. She was an amazing woman. I have very fond memories of extended periods of time spent with your family during school holidays where I simply became one of the family and felt so at home. Your mom lived a very full life and, like my mom, seemed to blossom in her retirement years with new passions that kept her vibrant and always smiling. I know you are all filled with wonderful memories that will ease the pain of your loss. Love to you all. Cathy Kiernan
