Thank you, Wednesday Journal, and Bill Dwyer especially for the thoughtful and sensitive coverage of the Memorial Mass for our daughter Kathy [Full house at Ascension says goodbye to Kathy Garrigan, News, July 18]. We were so moved by the vast array of family, friends and neighbors who took the time to be with us to celebrate her life. The children who attended, including the girls in Windmill uniforms on the altar, lifted our spirits. I know Kathy is looking down on us, smiling and rooting for her “team.”

We will always be indebted to our community for its incredible support during this most difficult time of our lives.
