My condolences to the Jupiter family and the Sisters of the Holy Family. I knew Sr. Greta since childhood when she was like a daughter to my mother and used to walk me to kindergarten at St. David. She was always kind and devoted to serving God and helping others. Although her beautiful spirit and daily contributions have ceased to be on earth. There is a measure of comfort in knowing that she now exists peacefully in Heaven with God.

To the family and Sisters of the Holy Family... "Death brings pain that only time can heal, No words can ease what you not fee; But with God, her joy is eternally sealed, and cherish her memories that death can not steal." Unknown .... May the greatest comforter strengthen you and mend your wounded heart. "Jeannie"
