    Dear Jane and Mike, You know I loved your dad so much. I was an honor and because I love him to be with him nearer to the end. He knew I was a pain, an hence named me WOPPY even though I am mostly Irish and English. He love people, teasing us as kds and into adulthood. My memories are warmth, and love. TO YOU JACK, Le Chiam. xxxoo Kathleen McCarthy
