Condolence & Memory Journal

Aunt Mary, You will be missed by so many. I have such fond memories of the summers I spent at your home when I was a teenager with Teresa. You always took the time to talk to us and share stories & your words of wisdom. Everyone will miss your Christmas newsletters. It was great to hear what your family (my cousins) were doing. My sincere condolences to my cousins, Edgar, Mary, John, Lee, Teresa, Joe & Charley.
