Dear Givas Family,

We are so deeply saddened by the loss of Aunt Mary. I always loved her stories about teachings. She really was a wonderful teacher to all of us, whether it be a new card game or our family history. Perhaps the most important lesson she taught us was how to put family first. It will be her enduring legacy.

May her memory be eternal.

All our love,
Alexandra & Jimmy
