The soul of Bridie (Folan) Mulkern) passed on 14 February 2009. Born on 1 January 1935, she was the loving mother of 4 sons: Tom, James, Kevin, and Michael. Tom is my friend. His mother was always warm and welcoming of his friends. She was a fine, fine lady of strong faith.

Her brogue was so thick that it was many visits before I could well understand her. But there were many, many visits to the Mulkern house over the years, and I was blessed with her friendship even apart from just being her son's friend.

She was always quick to laugh, a great teller of stories, and didn't mince words when she found something wrong.

I had not seen or spoken with Bridie Mulkern for a couple years. I understand she was brave in her last trial and died a peaceful death. May God grant her soul rest!


Please also pray for the soul of Angela Rose Izzo, 90; who passed away 1 am on Sunday in Groton Ct. Angela Rose Izzo is the grandmother of our dear friend Lori Dorchak.

Requiem aeternam dona eis Domine, et lux perpetua luceat eis. Requiescant in pace. Amen. — Eternal rest grant to them O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon them. May they rest in peace. Amen.
