Our hearts are with all of our cousins, family and friends that joined to honor our beloved Aunt Marie.
We are happy that Frank, Joe, Elizabeth and Brendan could be our Florida representatives.
Thinking of Uncle Paul and all the other Family there to welcome her at the pearly gates...just thinking of her laugh makes us smile. Love you all, Claire, Rick Margaret & Brian
