Dear Darby,
I just want to express my sadness to hear of the passing of your Grandmother Mary. Although I have not been in touch with your family in many years, I always think of her warmth and support when my mother died. I know that you and your family must miss her greatly.
The photos that you have posted of her on are beautiful. I will also look for old photos that I have of her and your grandfather, as well as, your mother and father.
Based on the obituary, I believe that you will be having a memorial mass at a later date. I would very much like to attend and honor her.
I sincerely would like to be in touch again with you. I will post this note both on Ancestry and with the funeral directors at
Warmest Regards,
Cynthia Peters Arnold

There are never any words when a loved one passes. I remember this lady and her family well. She was a very particular, sophisticated lady. Growing up in New Holland every one knew everyone. And the Ritz was a deffinate land mark. Where we went to see a movie. Rest in Peace
