Beth Coleman - May 15, 2016

Dear Becky, John and Mary,
Faith and I have talked several times these past few days , but please know that all of you are in my heart and thoughts as you grieve Mom Kennedy’s passing. She was a strong woman who endured a lot in her life, but who kept her humor, curiosity and faith intact–and who so clearly loved her family. I will be with you in spirit on Monday, and hope that the love of family and friends, and the sharing of stories and memories offers some comfort and gives you strength.
