I was sorry to learn of the passing of Mrs. Frances Berger. I have nothing but fond and happy memories of Father & Mrs. Berger at the time of their several visits to St Mary's Church in Philadelphia. It was always a joy to see them. After the death of Fr Berger, we also were delighted to welcome his widow back to St Mary's. We will remember her and her family in prayer. May her soul and the souls of the faithful departed rest in peace.

Aunt Frances,
Thank you so much for sharing your happy, fun, loveable self with Christian and me. You never failed to make us laugh. From the graduation parties to the birthday parties and, of course, that little conversation in the car! ;) I very much appreciated and enjoyed you teaching me how to crochet while relaxing in the sand on Promise Land Beach. And, mmmm, all those blueberry goodies, what talents you have shared! We will treasure you in our memories and hearts forever.
Love, Marci and Christian xoxo
