Dearest Maria,

We hope this message finds its way to you through the compassion of one of your brothers or sisters.

Grandma Aquila died on Friday, June 12th at 11:45 am.  She died very peacefully.  Dad and I were with her when she died.  I was holding her hand, praying and she slipped gently into the arms of her waiting Lord.  We were blessed to be with her.  She showed us how to die with incredible faith and dignity.  She died at home as she had hoped to.

Her funeral was today, and she will be buried on Thursday, June 25th.

Shalom, dearest daughter.  Our thoughts and prayers are with you daily.  Our hearts ache for your beautiful smile.


Dad and Mom, Jon and Lori, Joe, Ben and Jill
