To Sister's Family and Congregation, I spoke with sister at length after our mutual cousin, Gerry MacDonald, passed away on April 14, 2019. She sounded lovely on the phone. We talked about our mutual friend, a sister in the order, who sings at Our Lady's Choir in Newton, MA.

I just found the paper I used, when I called her. I thought I should check to see, if she was still alive, because she mentioned she had some health problems. I am very sorry I did not get to speak with her again. I will talk to her from here and hope she is with her beloved Jesus. Deepest sympathies. Mary Carolyn McCarty Duricakas
