Although I cannot be at the services for Michael tomorrow, please know that I am with all of you in spirit. The last few years when I have visited my family in Mass., it's been a special treat to have Michael and Gloria join us at family reunions. I was looking forward to another reunion next summer and hope that Gloria and Michael's family will come and join all of us each year. Keep in touch with the Benoit family - it's one of the things I treasure most from my annual visit.

My deepest sympathy to all of you, Aunt Loretta
