    Uncle Jerry, Micheal and Karen,
    Aunt Anne was so very special to me and I have no doubt that Uncle Joe and my father were there to welcome her home. Until we see them in Heaven please find comfort in knowing that she is watching over you and the grandchildren as she did when she was here. God Bless you all . ~Pat
