Sean, so sorry to read of your mothers passing. It has been awhile since we last talked. My prayers go out to you and your wife. I will always remember your Mom as such a sweet fun loving person. You were a good son – remember all the memories you made together.

Sean and Jaime: Mike and I are so sorry to hear about the passing of your mom. We will always treasure the many years of having our annual Christmas parties with you and your mom Sean…what great memories especially now during the holiday season. We sure loved your mom. She was the sweetest person with the funniest sense of humor too! We are so very sorry 🙏❤🙏 Many prayers!

Sean, so sorry to hear about your mom. I enjoyed so much our interactions when doing business at the bank. She was a great person who really cared about others. One fond memory I have of her is her help to us with our first visit to Notre Dame’s campus. Since your mom and dad had been there before, your dad wrote out directions for us (pre-Google and gps), and we even stayed at the same hotel. And lo and behold, Coach Holtz and the team were staying at that same hotel on Friday night. When I saw the team and Coach Holtz coming down for breakfast on Saturday morning, I immediately told her, and you all were able to get down in time to see them too. What a great experience. Every trip I’ve gone back since then brings memories of that trip and your mom’s kindness, God bless you Sean, and Go Irish!
