Thanks for remembering her
To the Catholic Sentinel:
Thank you for giving my mother front-page coverage. So many here noticed it and have contacted me. The article flowed well and it was wonderful to include her picture. All the celebrations of her life, and her journey to Heaven will not be forgotten.
