On behalf of the Capuchin brothers I offer my deepest sympathies on the passing of Virginia. It is truly humbling to receive memorial donations in honor of Virginia's life. Please be assured of the brother's prayers for the entire Bernadotte family during this great time of grief. May perpetual light shine upon Virginia.

I'm so sorry to hear of your mother's passing, Paula and Andra. I have so many memories of your family going all the way back to the Lathrup Village Nursery School where we all met. Your mom was the best! She always saw the good in everyone and that is a gift! I loved coming to your house for dinner (and swimming) because your family was so loving and fun. Paula could blast the Beatles in her purple bedroom and your mom was fine with it (as long as the door was closed). So many great memories (some I can't disclose...LOL) - but I can truly say that we had a great childhood and a lot of that had to do with our parents! Love to you all, Dawn (Schwallie) Waack
