    Mike and all the Picconi family.
    We are sending our Deepest Sympathy to all at this time. Your Mom/ Grandma was always considered one of our family. Jim and your Mom had a very special bond. We all enjoyed her company. The Picconis and Mathews have a lot of wonderful and warm memories together.

    Mary’s family: she was an awesome lady and I loved her. After I moved from Hunt, I didn’t visit as often as I should. For that, I am sad. Will miss her tremendously. 99 wow!

    To Michael, Irene and Family: Please accept our condolences from away. Also know that prayers will be sent with our blessings to give you all strength as you say Good-bye. This is when we wish that there wasn’t so much distance between us. I will have intentions and prayers said during Mass at St. Anthony’s in Fredericton. Thank-you so much for remembering us at this difficult time. Love and prayers always, Cathy and Rod aka Canadian Cousins.
