It is with sadness that I share with you the news of the
death of Mary Jo Kelly, mother of Kathy M. Kathy's Mom
passed away with Kathy at her side. Kathy asked that CRWN members who
wish to make a donation, make it to our scholarship fund, as her mother cared
very much about the importance of education. Kathy noted that the family
is asking that only those who knew her Mom personally attend the funeral.
In behalf of the Club, we send our deepest sympathy to
Kathy and her family. And in the weeks ahead, we will all do what we can
to support Kathy as she goes through this difficult time.
