Dear Kathleen and Paul,

I just saw your mom's obituary. I'm so sorry to learn that she passed away. She was a dear friend to our mom and your dad was a dear friend to our dad. I remember your dad's love for his bike and your mom's love for conversation. On behalf of Jackie, Julie and Joe please accept our deepest condolences. Maureen Hallice Lyons

Dear Kathleen, Paul, and all of the Canty family,
I am very sad to hear of Mrs. Canty's passing. She was so kind to me and my siblings from the time we were little, and I'll always remember what a lovely friend she was to my mom through these years. Mrs Canty had the most generous spirit and she helped my mom in so many ways. My thoughts and prayers are with you.
