To the family of Rena Marsili:
It is with deep sadness but warmest memories of Rena - a devoted and proud mother and good women - that I write this.
I will always remember escorting Rena and Murph to Hawaii to visit Pearl Harbor where Murph served our country.
Rena is looking at you and will guide you through this with wonderful memories.
Yours truly,
Norma Tosti
