Obituary for Marie Kettely Milcet

“The Day God Called You Home. God looked around his garden and found an empty place. He then looked down upon the earth, and saw your tired face. He put his arms around you, and lifted you to rest. God's garden must be beautiful, he always takes the best” (unknown).
