    Marie and Cherian were good friends when we were all on Diocesan Council together and involved in Diocesan activities. Several times they invited me to stay in their home during Council meetings. They were gracious, considerate hosts and getting to know them and their children was a highlight of our time together. Rest in peace and thank you for your kind example of love. DonnaLee Pettit
