Steve, Michael, Sue and Families,

Sylvia, Jack, Diane and myself are saddened to learn about your Mother. Aunt Rita was Sylvia’s and my Godmother and she always remembered each of us on our birthdays with a card telling us she had requested a mass for us. I still have my cards after all of these years.

Our family has scattered around but we want you to know we care, send our condolences and will keep you in our prayers.

Would you please see that we get a “prayer/memorial card” for your Mother.
