  1. As I tesrily contemplate the message Primo I am aware of two forces— love and faith. But I am also struck by how lucky your family is to have this angel and how she is a force in changing you a veteran physician. How powerful this love so pure. How important the need for family. How vital to live as people of faith. You are blessed. Prayers continue. Con cariño- Rosie
