a sad time for everyone

I would like to express my sympathy to dear Marianna O’Gallagher, as she was a famous and smart and loved person. I met her when she was a nun when I was young.  She came at the home at St. Brigid’s and did speak about Ireland, which was very nice.  Her cousin moved in to St. Brigid’s and Marianna was here all the time to visit and was very good to her cousin.
