    Aunt Mary I appreciate you for all the love and kindness you showed VaVa, my Mom and Dad and myself over the years. There are just no words to express the grief and loss I feel. I remember well when you lived with us in Santa Barbara and Danny and Ronnie! Needless to say between you, VaVa and Mom my Portuguese heritage cooking from Sopas, turnip soup, and of course Feijos Azores Style. May you rest in peace, you were loved by all. Hugs from Milwaukee, Wisconsin and as you always asked when we chatted it is so cold! Love, Erna Russert
