My condolences with the passing of your Mom, Grandmother and Great-Grandmother. Though i only knew her in the three and a half years i have been visiting my parents and now just my father in Shalom Manor, i always admired her grace, her elegance, her friendly smile and how, at such an advanced age, she was able to interact and talk with those around her. May you be surrounded by the Lord’s loving care in the days, weeks and months to come as you adjust to that empty place in your lives.
For all the years I have known Marina, I have heard fond stories of Alberdina. She was a good person and I am sure you will miss her. Keep the good memories close.
