Lois & Victoria,
It was always such a pleasure to speak with Mr. Bartholomew before Mass at Saint Mary Church. He had a wonderful sense of humor and had such a great outlook on life. The parishioners who sat near him also enjoyed his company. If he wasn't at Mass for a couple of weeks, everyone was concerned. He was truly a part of our parish family.

He also donated his Saint Mary School class picture to the church. Mr. Bartholomew was such a handsome...and very!
Please know that Mr. Bartholomew was loved and will be missed. He, and all of you, will be remembered in my prayers.

Thanks so much, Carol. I miss seeing you at St. Mary's. My dad looked forward to mass every Sunday until he couldn't make the trip any more. We enjoyed seeing you and the other parishioners who always sat in the same pews every week! You are all part of the many memories we'll keep close to our hearts.
