Dear Pat, I was sorry to see the death of your mother in the paper. It has been awhile since I have seen you, but I look at year books once in awhile and remember my first days at Catholic. I still see Coach Fraim, and Coach Guzzo once in awhile. I spoke with Coach Lane this evening. Again I was sorry to see the passing of your mother. Please tell Jean hello and if you are in the Norfolk area give me a call. I left Catholic after 28 years and am athletic director at Maury. Take care, John O’Hara.

Patrick and Jean,

I just wanted to let you know that Peggy’s obituary now appears online on our website. I am sending this message to you through the guestbook to test the forwarding feature.

I trust your return to Marietta was smooth. I will be in touch about the death certificates when they are available. As you requested the urn will be sent to you registered mail.

The obituary notice will be published in the Virginian Pilot and the Baton Rouge Advocate on Sunday June 1, 2003.

Feel free to contact me if I can assist further J. Ware
