A Heartfelt Thank You

On Sunday, December 8, 2013, our Mother, Fionnuala Clare Anderson, left this world quietly and peacefully, albeit unexpectedly. While we were not prepared for this unexpected event, the strength, support and love, given first to us in life by our beautiful Mother, and again at this difficult time by the outpouring of thoughtfulness from others, has been immense and immeasurable.
Thank you, Mom. We love you. Thank you, to all of you that made the celebration of her life a beautiful celebration that made us, and undoubtedly her, proud. The kind words and memories, flowers, cards, and donations in her name are invaluable. And thank you, to those of you that have made every other day possible from the kind gifts of your time, guidance and advice, prayers, a phone call or text message at just the right time, a dinner, a hug, a shoulder. Your actions speak volumes about your love for our Mom and have given us strength. We are forever grateful.
Fionnuala, number nine of ten children, is survived by six siblings, two children, five grandchildren, and lots of extended family and friends all whom miss her dearly but will keep her in their hearts forever.
Once again, a most heartfelt Thank You; to our wonderful Mother for everything and to all of you; our family, friends, and neighbors who have made this journey bearable.
You made, and will continue to make, a difference.
Angela & Tom
