I worked at St. Joseph's Hospital when Doodie first started working there she was the 2nd RNA to come to work there. Last time I saw her was in the hospital about 18 months ago we had a nice chat. I am very sorry for your loss I will keep your family in my prayers Midge Loney

Dear Mr. McCaffrey (and family), please accept my heartfelt condolences regarding the loss of your sister. I did not know Kathleen, but I have fond memories of you as being a very knowledgeable, fair, and respectful teacher. You taught me history in high school. I was not a memorable student, unless it was for bad, but passing marks in history, but you might remember me from Ron Yorke's visitation and a small group conversation that included Johnny Bond. I have no doubt that your conduct - the example that you provided for many impressionable young students had a positive effect on their lives which subsequently had a ripple effect. I suspect that because Kathleen was your sister, that she, too, has so influenced others. It is a noble legacy. I hope that you and your family are faring well. Sincerely, Michelle (Bindner) Rondeau
