  1. IN LOVING MEMORY OF MARIE
    “MY CAMELOT”

    “Each evening, from December to December,
    Before you drift to sleep upon your cot,
    Think back on all the tales that you remember Of Camelot.
    Ask every person if he’s heard the story,
    And tell it strong and clear if he has not,
    That once there was a fleeting wisp of glory called Camelot.
    Don’t let it be forgot
    That once there was a spot
    For one brief shining moment that was known as Camelot.”

  2. Mary Ann says:

    Ave Maria (Latin Text)

    Ave Maria, gratia plena, Dominus tecum.
    Benedicta tu in mulieribus,
    et benedictus fructus ventris tui, Iesus.
    Sancta Maria, Mater Dei,
    ora pro nobis peccatoribus,
    nunc et in hora mortis nostrae. Amen.

    Ave Maria
