    Know of my sympathy and prayers upon hearing about Cabrini. She was always very good to me and I had the privilege of working with her on several occasions. I always felt a connection to Cabrini because I had gone to school with one of her nephews. She is now celebrating eternity with the many MSJ Followers of Angela who gladly welcomed her home. She will be missed.
