    Maureen, may you find Heaven as beautiful as you thought. And I hope there’s a Malley’s hot fudge sundae on every cloud.

    What an abundant life! I remember celebrating some wonderful Thanksgivings with Maureen. She was always so kind to my ill brother. And, of course, I’m always grateful for her sharing her sister with me.

    We send our thoughts, love, and prayers.
