To the family of Ceil Kohler,
I just wanted to add my sympathy and condolences over the loss of your mother. She truly was one of the
sweetest, kindest women I had the pleasure of knowing as a neighbor/mom of a classmate/ coworker at the Friary. May she
feel the arms of Our Lord's embrace and rest in eternal peace. -Nancy Joy (Cooney from 5 Lincoln)

Grandma, I always loved cooking with you and mom. I also remember all the times you taught us older grandkids to play penny poker and gin rummy. Also your reactions to my Christmas eve hijinks of kidnapping baby Jesus from the nativity scene. Those were the good times. I'm glad I got to see you recently and even happier I made you proud of me.
Love Tammy
