She is in the hospital, my dear aunt, "Tia Isca", my father's only sibling. She is 95 and very weak. I have been flooded with wonderful memories of how she enriched our lives! Sister Martina, sister Margo and I have been praying, and so has our own Sr Maria and her sisters at the Priory. And other loving relatives. Sister Martina sent us the last picture she has with our beloved aunt. Below it I added photos of the last children's play she wrote and directed, I happened to have a large part and remember well the costume my mom sewed for me. It was her own adaptation of O. Henry's The Last Leaf and we staged it in English!
