Condolence & Memory Journal

Katie and family; my deepest sympathy on the loss of your mom. When I think of the countless hours spent in your home growing up, late night ice cream runs with her and your dad, and how she always made me feel like one of the family, I am so blessed. As if there weren't enough kids in the house, there was always room for me at the table and a welcoming smile; that's how big her heart was. Thanks for sharing your mom with me; what a gift. love, Cece Mast McTigue

I first met Mrs. Lyon when Molly and I became friends in the 4th grade. My impression of her then which remains today is that she was beautiful and refined (and oh those gorgeous eyes!). Her house, like a lot of others back in those days, was swarming with kids and activity but in the midst of all of it she was calm and unflustered, the epitome of elegance to me.

Please accept my sincere condolences on her passing.
