    After dinner every day the poor boy used place a piece a meat on the little table under the image and when he used go back the Blessed Virgin used talk to him. This day the Blessed Virgin told the boy that the next night she would give him a dinner in heaven and when the priest heard this he told the boy to ask her if she would take himself too she said all right.

    That morning they were found dead in the bed.
