    Dear Brian
    I am so very sorry to read of your sister, Mary Ellen’s passing. May the love of those around you offer you support, may your memories bring you comfort, and may God’s peace be with you. With Sincere Sympathy,

  2. Lee Wojtowicz (Smith) says:

    Auntie, I am heartbroken with your passing. My childhood was filled with beautiful memories of us together! I will always watch Pocahontas and think of the million times I had you watch this with me! We sang our hearts out to the Colors of the Wind! Never once did you complain! My Princess Leia buns were adorable and I will never forget how you brought me to get them! You sat there with the biggest smile as the lady did my hair! I know I grew up thinking you were just my god mother, but we always shared a special connection and I can now understand and appreciate that bond because I am a Aunt as well! I love you so much Auntie! When I came home last time in September, we sat and talked and I know you are home and in peace. I will miss you forever but I know you with your Mom and Dad and you are happy!
    With Love Forever and Always,
    Your Little LeeLee

    My late husband, Don, had so many cousins that I never had the pleasure of meeting. My thoughts are with the greater Patenaude family and especially those close to Mary Ellen Smith
