My deepest sympathies to the family of Ms Squires. It was my privilege to know her at Mount Carmel Care Center and to share our Brooklyn beginnings. She and her family will be remembered in my prayers and the prayers of all the Carmelite Sisters for the Aged & Infirm, sponsor of Mount Carmel Care Center.
