Excerpt from Message

Dear Mother, July 16 We spent the night in Lourdes and took part in the evening candlelight procession. It really was an emotional experience. So many people are here from all over the world. The city, however, is a disappointing sight with all of its concession stands. I have circled where the Grotto is. Your loving child Diane Carlos
