Pomfret Center – I was born in Annapolis, Maryland in 1951. My dad, Henry A. Burke, and my mom, Kathleen T. Marcella welcomed their first baby girl. I have two younger sisters, Pat and Robin. I was married on August 1, 1970, to Richard D. Morin. We then had Tim, Jill, and Laura who made up our family. Jill then had my two granddaughters, Kayla and Saige. Laura and Tom had my grandsons, Caleb, Jacob, and Noah and Tim gave us Chelsea who then completed our family with my great-grandson, Lucas. I also have many nieces and nephews whom I love.
I want to leave you with love and happiness and a few quotes I have come to live by:
“Give us clear vision, that we may know when to stand and what to stand for because unless we stand for something we shall fall for anything.” -Peter Marshall
“Be kind to one another.” Rev. Sylva P. LeCours
“Give the ones you love wings to fly, roots to come back to, and reasons to stay.” -Dalai Lama
“The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.” – Edmund Burke
And last but not least- “You always know what is right and wrong. You make the choice.” – Me
Much love and kindness to you all. I love you and ask you to pray for me as I will pray for you.
