My name is Linda Sage Clarke, and my mother was your father’ cousin. I always thought of your parents as the friendliest and most fun people when I was growing up. I definitely lost touch over the years, but Mary Frances always kept me abreast of their whereabouts and activities. The last time I saw your Mom was when Mary Frances was visiting her and my husband and I were in our motorhome nearby. Your Mom was always such a gracious hostess and you could see her eyes light up whenever there was talk of her family. Please accept my condolences and know that she was always admired and loved by your Dad’s side of the family, as was he.

Aunt Meg, May angels lead you into paradise;upon your arrival, may the martyrs receive you and lead you to the holy city of Jerusalem. May the ranks of angels receive you, and with Lazarus, the poor man, may you have eternal rest.
