From the beginning of St. Helen (and me) to the "ball cap, pigtails, and jeans" incident, from SHS graduation to meetings with Fr. Tom at SCS - you will always be in my heart and never forgotten!

Your pain is over .. rest in peace.

You were one of the kindest people we have ever met.
Your love of people, young and old was unmatched.
Our boys, Patrick & David, still remember you from St Helen and often speak fondly of you.

You didn't deserve the pain you suffered in recent years but you endured it as best your could.
Peggy & I were honored to be counted among your friends and we were proud to have you among ours.
You were unmatched in your loyalty and compassion. You are truly an inspiration.

All our love - we miss you.
Byron & Peggy Lasseter
