My name is Hien Le, a good friend of David Shepherd who is Ms. Mary Jane’s son. I somehow became your “adopted” grandchild through the years, which I really appreciated that.
I will definitely miss you grandma and I am sure all of us will miss you too. Annabel and Alwin always keep the pillows you made for them since they were born.
We will keep you in our daily prayers and in our memories. Love you from Le’s family.
To all the Ulicny family, we are truly saddened to hear about our dear and beloved long-time friend, Edith. Mom and her loved talking to each other and being in the Senior Group together at St. Francis. Sending you all our thoughts, prayers and condolences.
