Hi Tony,
I don't know if you remember me, but we had many good times together in High School. Bryan Durkin told me of the loss of your dear wife, and I wanted to extend my deepest sympathy. My prayers are with you and your family. May God bless you all at this difficult time.

Dear Tony & Nicholas, I just heard of Dawn's passing, and I'm shocked and so sad. We were such good friends and shared an office at Loyola, and still saw each other at cardiology dinner meetings occasionally. I had no idea she was ill. I loved her - soo full of life, and one of the kindest people I knew. Please know you and your family are in my heart and prayers.

I remember Dawn from Sunday School at Christ Lutheran Church in Melrose Park many years ago. She was a wonderful girl from a wonderful family. May God keep Dawn's family in His love and may they hold fast to the promises of Jesus and His Resurrection during this difficult time.

Dear Tony:

This is an old friend of yours from our days growing up, Bryan Durkin. I learned tonight of the passing of your beloved wife Dawn. Although many, many years have passed, since we've seen each other, I have fond memories of our teen years, our friendship and your wonderful family. I simply had to let you know that you and your family are in my thoughts and prayers in the profound loss of your accomplished and beautiful wife.

With deepest sympathy,

Bryan Durkin
