Condolence & Memory Journal

Sister Natalie was my first grade teacher many many years ago in 1958. We had two grades in one classroom and there were 72 students in our room. Somehow, she managed to teach us to read and say our prayers. She had quite an influence on my life and I thank her for instilling the gift of faith in me. Rest In Peace, Sister Natalie. Your work here is done.
