Thomas & Marieta Gaite

Papa loved to sing and dance. It was natural for him to show affection. He taught us the value of work, respect for others, and devotion for family. Mama was well read, a great cook, avid gardener, and devoted wife and mother. She was reserved but showed that she cared in many ways. She taught us to save and use money wisely, and never betray another's trust. Mama and Papa provided nine children with a college education. For their sacrifices and untiring love, we hold them dear in our hearts.
