  2. Dear Family,
    Celebrating the life of Dear Aunt Rebecca. She was fun, loving, and very caring. I will always remember her head back laughter and strong voice. She will be missed by all who knew and loved her. Although I was unable to make the trip, I will be with you all in spirit, and join you in her Rosary, and other family times from afar as you celebrate her reunion with family that is there to greet her.
    All my Love, Sandy
