Aunt mary, you know we all love you and will miss you! You are in God's hands with so many others that we love and miss so much. I am sure you are all together now. I have many fond memories of you...but the one thing I remember so much was all of the letters we wrote...there was no internet and email back then! You were staying with Youlanda in Italy and oh the stories you had! I learned a lot from you ... things I will never in peace!

I can't wait to see my beloved husband again. Meanwhile, may you all keep looking down on us with your loving graces. May the white light of the Holy Spirit shine down upon us during this time of our sorrow.
