    I worked with Ursula for many years. She always helped me when I needed something and I still remember her deep laugh. She was a great witness for Christ and I'll always remember our conversations about the Harry Potter books. May God comfort you in your time of sadness.

    May God wrap his arms of comforot around you and the children and give you peace during this time of grief. We all know that that is what Ursula would want for all of you. I am certainly going to miss her. I am going to miss making her laugh especially during our travels, and especially when I was teasing you about everything and anything during our meal times (when Maudrine and I had to race to get to the bread basket before you ate it al)l and when we would go up on deck at the end of the day's activities and I would start teasing you all over again, telling her what I had seen you do during the day (most of it made up just to make her laugh, but there was some truth also (smiles). Ursula would laugh so hard, and if I did not show up at a meal, she let me know about it. I am going to miss her but she did leave me some beautiful memories to hang onto. Frankie, she left you a treasure of memories – over 50 years, so hold onto them and use them when you need a ray of sunshine. May God bless you and the children.
