  1. Our deepest and sincerest sympathy goes out to her family and friends. Sincerely yours Cindy Mulcahey

  2. I am rewriting my sympathy letter, cause I saw I wrote “his” instead of her. Please accept my apology for this error. Was Mrs. Chwalek a teacher here in Oswego City School District ? God Bless her soul. May Jesus hold you in his wings as you say your last goodbyes! Sincerely Yours Mrs. Cindy Mulcahey
