My sympathies to Pauline and all the family. I have good childhood memories of visiting Marie Ange with my Aunt Leose, my mom Janine and her twin, Aunt Janet.
Prayers and God bless.
Love,

Dear Pauline and Charles, I was saddened to learn that your Mom had died, but happy for her. She was an extraordinarily sweet woman. I have to think that having been made to wait so long for heaven made her entrance all the sweeter. Know that I offered my first Mass this morning for the repose of her soul. Your whole family is in my prayers!
