From: Gerald C. Fitzgerald
Dear Fran, thanks for all the many wonderful memories of you and Bob and your Reavey family. Eileen and our Fitzgerald family will miss you. Until we meet again: "May the roads rise to meet you. May the winds be always at your back. May the sun shine warm upon your beautiful face. May the rains fall soft upon your fields. And, until we meet again (with Mom, Dad, Maureen, Aunt Kathy, Uncle George, Ed and Frank Bertles), may God hold you in the hollow of His hand." Rest assured you will be in our prayers, Adorations, Mass and Holy Communions for as long as I live. Love always, your brother, Gerry and our Fitzgerald family. May Jesus, Mary and St. Joseph welcome you into their presence in Heaven. May your soul, Fran, and the souls of all your beloved family rest in peace with them forever.
