Condolence & Memory Journal

Hello, this greeting is from Cork in Ireland, hoping all the O'Mahony family are keeping well. I have been working on our family tree, and perhaps someone in your family would be interested in corresponding. Nora Buckley wrote to my mother, Ann Murphy Naughton, up to the time of her death, and her life in America was a source of interest to the Buckley family. Kindest regards and hoping you are nearing your loss well. Ann Naughton

To all the family, but especially to Jim Jr, Bill and Seth because you're the ones I knew, my sincere sympathy on your loss. I got to know him when you kids all played together. We lost track of each other but then was pleased to run into him in Peterborough and catch up. Hopefully your fond memories will help you cope. Best wishes for the difficult times ahead.
