Condolence From: Kathy Costigan-DeHaut
Condolence: Our cousin Kathy attended the Wake and brought a very beautiful mass and prayer card from her and Frank, with Perpetual Membership for mum in the Marianist Spiritual Alliance, to be forever remembered in Marianist Masses and Prayers. And there are very comforting messages shown inside the card.

And on June 18 she also sent this email -
Oh Amara, what a lovely tribute to your mom!!! And of course, so true. May she rest in peace.

I, too, am very glad to have made the trip to Smithtown to help send Aunt Audrey on her way and to visit with all of you. Too long and too far apart are our chances to get together.

I know you will all miss your mom so much but, as you said, she will be happy with Uncle Jim and all of the extended family in heaven... so many of them are there.

Do keep in touch.
Much love, Kathy
