The mass this morning was so beautiful. Loved the songs and especially the homily. Father really did a wonderful job sharing bits and pieces of her life, which she spent in service, giving glory to God. I will always cherish the memories I have of Aunt Henrietta and the special bond we shared as godmother and godchild. ❤ Bernice
