SACHS -- Mary C. In Loving Memory March 20, 1911 - July 2, 1998 You left seven years ago, yet at times it feels like only yesterday. I choose to remember the good times and stop dwelling on the illness that stole the last few years of your life. I look back to all we shared and remember how much we appreciated one another. The memories I have now, are what we made together, not realizing the impact they would have on me now that you're gone. I pray for you daily and one day we will be reunited again. Your loving daughter, Angeline Sachs Velasquez
