Condolence & Memory Journal

Hello all. Sorry to hear about mom's death. With all that is going on now I can't imagine how hard it was going thru this. No friends were able to provide support during the service. Been keeping all of you in my thoughts. Stay strong..

Peace Eddie

Our sincere condolences to the entire Sutherby family. Margaret and I felt like we won the lottery having moved into the house next door almost 27 years ago. Mary was always kind to us and constantly had encouraging words for us, especially when our children were very young. Honestly, we wished we had the Frank & Mary playbook for raising children! One memory I have is when I was all alone talking to Mary and she looked me straight in the eye and said "I'll make a deal with you". I agreed even before hearing what it was because I knew it would be fair. Then Mary said "I'll say prayers for you if you will say prayers for me". Maybe that was a deal Mary made with many people, but it sure felt special to me. So now I still say prayers for Mary because I truly believe she's still keeping up her end of the deal. May Frank & Mary both rest in peace. -Jeff & Margaret Driscoll

Thanks for having me, Mom. Thanks for always replying, Thanks for coming! I loved your usual response. You taught us wisdom. You taught us love. You ignited our faith. So humble. So giving. So loving. I hope you're not uncomfortable receiving the applause of Heaven. You certainly didn't want applause on Earth. That said, your eternal reward is immeasurable. I love you. I am happy you are reunited with Dad and Our Lord in Heaven. Eternally grateful to you. Forever blessed you are my mother. We affirm to God: How Great Thou Art. Rest in peace! <3 bob>
