  1. Dearest Family, Our heartfelt sympathies are with you. We remember dear Auntie Anne from our lovely holiday dinners at Fr. Stabene’s home, when Lucy and all your other dear family and friends were gathered around the altar for Mass of Thanksgiving, and the table of Plenty. Plenty of sharing and plenty of love. We will always cherish those memories. We will be praying for the repose of her soul as we ask her to pray for us on our journey to join her. We wish we could be with you this evening, but Deacon Randy is officiating the Stations of the Cross, along with housing guests from out of state, who will be arriving at dinner. Know that during the Stations we will carry you in a special way with our Blessed Mother as she walked the Way of the Cross with Our Lord Jesus Christ. Please give Francis, Lou and Fr. Stabene our message also. Our hearts united with the Passion of Our Lord Deacon Randy and Mary Ellen Redington
