To the Family of my very beautiful and loving sweet Friend, Neighbor and Quilter, "Rete"...I could never describe all the wonderful visits over tea and cookies and the sound of the sound of the roaring Falls on their property and Home built by the Love of her Life, Seiger. I have such fond memories of the stories "Rete" would tell me of their Great Love & Romance quite some years ago!
You are once again together in the Palm of God's Hands.
My Condolences and Sincere Love to everyone,
A Dry Brook Neighbor, Much Love, Ellie Aulino

I am remembering the good times with Aunt Marguerite and Uncle Sig. She loved to play cards with mom and dad. She was so sweet.

I have wonderful memories of Aunt Marguerite. She was very special to me. I used to enjoy listening to her talk about the times she had growing up. She had a great life. RIP
