We're sorry to hear of Aunt Mary's passing and regret that we're unable to be there. She was a strong and talented woman. I always enjoyed visiting with her and talking on the phone or reading letters about the family genealogy. She was determined to visit us on her final trip to to Texas. We met her outside of Victoria, TX and brought her to our house for a great time. There was an order of sisters there that was a part of her early life. She had a religious wall picture that she had wanted to donate to them. Aunt Mary wasn't too sure about staying with us as she worried about our dog. They got along fine! I admire her for accepting heart surgery several years ago and then continuing on with life. She always enjoyed a glass of wine, "just a little" and now can add those sweet desserts without a worry. She was also my godmother, and she was there with me at my graduation from Pitt. Rest in eternal happiness, peace, and love!

Sister-in-law Mary Kulha (Tassoney) has asked me to post her her condolences and sympathy to all of the Skallos/Kulha relatives. She knows that "Medka" will now be at peace in God's eternal Love!
