To my Dear Higgins Cousins,
Sending my heartfelt condolences to all of you on the loss of your sweet Mother. May your memories of all the happy times you spent with your Mom help to ease your sadness . Please know that I will keep all of you in my thoughts and prayers.
Almost 50 years ago, the first Higgins sibling met the first Polcari sibling and a lifelong friendship between the two families began. Mrs. Higgins, as we respectfully called her, was always so friendly when we entered the house. It was obvious that her world revolved around her children and that love was felt throughout their home. She was a wonderful lady who left behind and amazing family. Her love for her family and friends will forever be cherished. May she Rest In Peace.
It’s hard to find the words to express my love for Mrs. Higgins! She loved Quinnlyn and I like her own family from the first day we met her so many years ago. We are honored to have been a part of her life and share laughs and birthday dinners with her and the Higgins crew. My prayers and thoughts are with you all John, Alice, and Tyler, Dee & Paul, Joanne, Mike and Mark. I hope your sadness can be eased by the wonderful memories you have of your mom and grandmother.
Sending our deepest condolences to you and your family, Alice. You are in our thoughts and prayers. We are so glad John's mom was released from the hospital into the loving care of family. It's never easy to say good-bye, but we are pleased that you all had the opportunity to spend a little time by her side. Love, Karen & Wayne
Keeping you all in our prayers. Your Mom was a wonderful woman who raised an awesome family. Love you guys. Lori and Chris Fama
