So sorry to hear about Aunt Nukie, will keep you all in our prayers. We are on South Padre Island in Texas until March 3 and unfortunately will miss her funeral Mass. We were so glad we got to visit with Nukie at her 90th birthday party. She was a great aunt and will miss seeing her at reunions, and such.

Sandy, I'm sorry I didn't get a chance to speak to you at the funeral. ( I was one of the singers.) Haven't seen you for a long time. Your mom must have been a special lady. You and all the family are in my thoughts and prayers.
