Dearest Family, It's so hard to understand why loved one's are taken from us. When the Lord calls our loved one's home, he leaves a gift of memories in exchange. Memories are the legacy of love. Catherine was such a beautiful Mother inside and out. Peter, Robert, Tom, and Philip, you are all wonderful reflections of your mother. What a beautiful family. I prayed everyday that Catherine would make it to her 100th birthday. What a wonderful accomplishment! When Renata called me on Valentines Day to share the news me with, I was sadden. Then I thought... Wow! What a special day! She will always be in everyone's hearts! An ear to listen, A hand to hold, A heart to share, A friend who cares. You are in my thoughts every step of the way! All my love and prayers, Michalene Grifka

Aloha from an Argiri! Having lived in Hawaii I learned aloha means hello and till we meet again. Will we all meet again? The Bible promise is of a new heaven and new Earth, (thy kingdome come, thy will be done on Earth as it"s done in heaven). Heaven on Earth, that hasnt happened yet has it, but if you"ve seen the news lately you know were liveing in strange times and we might need some divine intervention soon. Gods son said lift your heads up when you see crazy times in one generation because you know your deliverance is soon. Can you believe it? Seeing Catherine again and Bill, my mom Dorothy and my dad Sam Argiri Sr.( Catherines cousin ), my sister Joans (tootsie) son Larry and Matzies husband Alex, the list goes on and on. Is thy kingdom coming? The calm after the coming storm of armaggedon? I hope so. I'm not getting any younger! I think it looks that way doesnt It? So never give up, no matter how bad it gets! Hang in there and keep on keepin on. The meek will inherit the Earth, we will be together again. Pie in the sky? You bet! We could all use a few more pies in this sorry old world. I hope I havent said to much! So for now I"m ah geddon outa here! Aloha Catherine 2nd cousin Tommy

Thomas N. Argiri
