|Marilyn (Diddy) Williams/Haines and Tony Williams/Shaver|
After an hour of searching for Tony Williams-Shaver's grave my sister Donna, my cousin Ann Louise and I found it tucked under a beautiful Pine Tree in the old section of Holy Cross Catholic Cemetery in Culver City. It was without a doubt the coldest, windiest day I can remember in California and I believe Tony's Spirit was dancing with Joy in the wind, as his long lost relatives not only visited him, but now honor his memory and hold him dear in their hearts.
If you want to know more about my uncle Tony and why his grave remained unmarked for 63 years, you'll have to read my book!!!
Thank you for following The Maybelline Book Blog....
My sister Donna corrects my faux Pas!!! Sorry about that.

Unfailing Prayer to Saint Anthony Blessed be God in His Angels and in His Saints. O Holy St. Anthony, gentlest of Saints, your love for God and Charity for His creatures made you worthy, when on earth, to possess miraculous powers. Miracles waited on your word, which you were ever ready to speak for those in trouble or anxiety.
Encouraged by this thought, I implore of you to obtain for me (request). The answer to my prayer may require a miracle. Even so, you are the saint of Miracles.
O gentle and loving St. Anthony, whose heart was ever full of human sympathy, whisper my petition into the ears of the Sweet Infant Jesus, who loved to be folded in your arms, and the gratitude of my heart will ever be yours.
Amen. (Say 13 Paters, Aves, and Glorias)
