  • I was there and wiped these tears with a hanky from my mother. I was almost 6 years old and both my older sister and brother were also there. My Sister went to Convent School with both Shirley and Beverly. Miracles have taken place after this and are still taking place. Blessed Mother and St Anne pray for us. God Bless Lew
