    Jean was the first person I met at Incarnation when I moved to Palos Heights in 2008. She helped me grow spiritually because I was touched by her devotion and her strong Catholic faith. I will miss
    her so very much. Alice Doherty

    I will never forget you. Your kindness to me when I was a young mother. I still have the baby blanket you crocheted for my daughter. All four of the kids used that blanket. The kids still take about
    the block parties and the fun they had with you and Casey.

    Words cannot express the sadness my family and I feel. We will miss our friend dearly. Our heartfelt condolences go out to Nancy, Jennifer, Tim and all their respective families.

    God, hold your right hand; it is I who say to you, “Fear not, I am the one who helps you.”

    When someone dies, the grief we experience can be overwhelming. As we mourn, we look for ways to ease the pain. As Catholics, we turn to our faith to help us through such difficult times.
    "I am the Resurrection and the life; those who believe in Me, though they die, will live; and everyone who lives and believes in Me will never die." John 11:25-26
    You will always be in our hearts dear Jim, especially as we watch the fireworks at the McCarron Airport parking lot every New Years Eve!!
