We are all so sad that our dear Aunt 2 Leen has passed. We know she is now home and her kindness and love she shared with
all of us will remain in our hearts forever. We will miss you at family gatherings and miss our visits to Assisi and Our Lady of Angels Convent and little visits when we shared a nice cup of tea with you. God bless you and your family at Assisi House and Our Lady of Angels.
Love , Patsy Walsh McGurk
