Messages of Condolence

  1. Our deepest sympathies and prayers for you and Jeremy. He’s up in heaven showing Jesus how to pitch and St. Peter how to bat.

  2. Our deepest sympathy and prayers for you and your family,Chris.
    Sorry we have to miss the funeral but our thoughts are with you and yours. May you find peace

  3. Dear Chris and family,
    I just wanted to extend to you and yours my deepest sympathy. I don’t know if you would remember me. I did attend Mass at St. Leo’s for a time and you asked for prayers for your husband. I did add him to my prayer list. But I haven’t been at St. Leo’s for quite some time. I was the tall “gal” always wearing a hat.
    Again, I’m sorry for your loss. Peace!
