  4. Although I didn’t know my great aunt very well, I am saddened by her passing. I was fortunate to have met and conversed with her recently at the calling hours of my mother this past august. She was very kind and generous. The conversation was enjoyable. I am sorry for the loss. Prayers to those close to her.
