    You blessed my life more than you will ever know. Having you in my life for the last 9 years has been so special. You truly were one of a kind and I loved your spunk and sense of humor. You always made people smile. My heart hurts, but I know you are at peace. You will always be my best friend and I cherish every memory I have with you. God brought us together for a reason. I will see you at the gates of heaven. I love you so much.
    Your little buddy,

    I extend my prayerful sympathy to Chris and John on the death of their dear mother. I am offering Mass here in Rome for her eternal life with God in Tom’s company. I was recently in Brussels and remembered how my mother and father met during World War II in Louise.’s mother’s cafe in Anderlecht. My mother Jeanne Cuvelier Conn (+2014) were girlhood friends in Belgium and stayed in touch during their years in the USA. I have the best of memories of Louise.
