My deepest sympathy on the passing of the beautiful, vivacious and effervescent Ileana. I knew her from birth, lived in the same house as Mom and Gram. Many years later, worked in the Salve Regina College Dean's Office. Illeana was a nursing student and visited often. She came to the door, called out; "Hi everyone," and made the office come alive. Immediately always came to my desk for a hug and a kiss. "Hi Mrs. G or Purple Lady," then to person she was seeking. What a bright light in a somber office! I cried as I read her obit- to know her was to love her, and that is what I did. My thoughts and prayers are with all of you at this very sad time in your lives. Marion Galvin, Newport, RI USA
