So sorry that I missed the obituary until it was too late to pay our respects at the funeral home or to go to the mass. I have not seen Mary Margaret for quite some time or have heard anything about her. We all get so busy with our lives that we are unable to stay in contact with all our cousins. Rita, I do not have your address or else I would have sent you a card in the mail. I will certainly remember Mary Margaret in my prayers. Please take care.

Your cousin,

Cookie Schmid
