I had the privilege of meeting Sr Sebastian at Cabrini when she ate at my mom's table. She was a very sweet, gentle and friendly person. Condolences to her family....she will be missed.

Aunt Gen was the oldest in a family of 7 children. Over the years, she visited our family in Illinois and Tennessee from the 1970s to the 1990s. She took me on a car trip when I was in college through New York state's beautiful Hudson Valley. A story from her childhood: once when her family was on vacation at the Jersey shore, the kids dressed up the youngest then - my Uncle Tom - as Al Smith for the "baby parade" - I assume with a hat and cigar. She was always so delighted about the successes of all of us in my generation of the family, my cousins and so on.
