Dear Pat and family,

This is Tina's Aunt Thelma (Felch) Olshefski Mackiewicz family.

She was Uncle Walter's sister. We were very sorry to read this.

Tina was the tallest and prettiest bride I ever saw, with such a beautiful smile.

Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.

Cousins Rich and Irene(O'Rourke) Mackiewicz
