    Sheila, John and family, Gelo and Zita,

    Tom and I were so sad to hear that Nattie passed away this morning from this horrible virus. Although it has been a while since I have seen Nattie, and I am so sorry for that, she was like a mother to me. I loved talking with her and hearing her stories about her grandchildren and how much she loved them. Sheila I am so sorry you couldn’t be with her, but I am glad that Gelo could be there by her side. I have no doubt that on this special day it was your Dad who took her by the hand and led her into heaven. May they both rest in heavenly peace. All our Love.
