December 8, 2014 My Dearest Marlene, I just found out about your passing. It is quite a shock. You know how very much I have always loved you. Praying always for you has been easy to do. I know I was praying The Divine Mercy Chaplet a lot during the week God took you home. In fact, come to think of it, my friend Cristina was at Villa Marie Clare the week before. I know on this feast of the Blessed Virgin Mary, that I will always remember you in a special way on this day. I hope you didn't suffer much. I know that the Holy Family was there to take you home. Reunited with Shelley is your joy! Please watch over Matthew and Kristen. I am happy for you, my dear friend. I pray for the day we will be together forever! Love you, Theresa xoxoxoxoxoxoxo PS Thank you for all the advise and concern you have always had for my family. I will forever cherish the picture of you holding Matthew....... xoxoxoxo
