Our sad farewell to the gracious and lovely lady who came with us each Tuesday night to St. Anthony's Novena. We both loved being with you, the most beautiful, sweet, kind, loyal, and classy lady. Our visits to Panera will not be the same without you. Memories of you are saddened by your departure. Farewell until we meet again our dear friend. We will always cherish the memory of you and your kindness, warmth, affection, and friendship.
