  4. Teresa Conmy Stack condolence:

    At peace now. Uncle Mike, we grew up in Chicago with happy memories of lots of family get togethers and fun. After we moved to Ireland, we didn’t have as many cousins around, so we still kept in touch and visited. The last year or so had been hard for Mike and Pasty both. Trying to think of one of your ‘good’ Irish jokes….. Rest Easy. RIP. Teresa Conmy Stack and Gamily
