Kevin, Tom and all of the O'Keefe family:

My heartfelt sympathy on the passing of your mom.  Second only to my own mother, I probably learned more from your mom than from any other of my friends' moms.  I'm sure you will all miss her, but my faith tells me that your beloved mother is indeed in a better place and that you and she will be reunited in the life to come.  I wish I could be there with you, but will be thinking of you and remembering you in my prayers.

Your friend,

Kevin Delorey

I have wonderful memories of Nana,always making me laugh at her stories of bringing up her family. I found her to be so kind, and always interested in my life,never forgetting to ask about me about what  I was doing.
She never let me leave empty handed,always sharing a great soup or stew.

I was always moved how much she and Papa loved each other,and can still seeing them sitting on the couch holding hands .
They are together now,still so in love,and together for always.

God bless them both, and the whole Okeefe family.

My thoughts and prayers go out to all your family.  Regrettably, I never had the opportunity of meeting her, but knowing her sons it's obvious that she was a wonderful person.
