My prayers and thoughts are with the family on the loss of a loved one
My sincere condolences to the Dimond and Breen family members. I am the son of Thomas and Noreen Dillon.
Wonderful memories of visits with Aunt Frances at family get togethers. I will remember most her laugh and great sense of humour.! She was proud of our Irish heritage and always had an Irish saying or story to share to remind us of the wisdom and luck of the Irish.
Forever in our hearts,
Condolences to Frances’s family and friends. I was Frances’s 2nd cousin and grew up in the same area. We attended the same church, and catechism class, which her mother Stella often taught. We loved going to the dances in the area and after the school moved to Kingston and lived with Frances for a while. She was fun and always with a smile and chuckle. She had beautiful red hair and it was wonderful, knowing her. Rest in Peace, dear friend.
When I think of Aunt Frances, I remember her infectious laugh. Some of my fondest memories of her are when she came to visit us on Albert St. She always showed such kindness and generosity toward her nieces and nephews. I recall when Uncle Frank and Aunt Frances would play cards with my parents telling jokes and laughing endlessly. I know my mom always looked forward to those visits and regarded them as some of the most treasured memories of her sister. I envision a euchre game in heaven now with an Irish tune playing in the background and a whiskey on the rocks!
Love, Lucy and family xo
