I am so pleased to have the memorial to my cousin, Mariana. Seeing the photo of her and Pete reminded me of how long ago it has been since I’ve seen them. It is a beautiful photo and it is just as I remember them. I am sorry now that it took so long to pay a visit. All of us will miss her very much. She was a lovely lady.

My heartfelt condolences go out to Pete and the family and I hope time will heal the sorrow you feel now.

Love to all of you.
