Carol, I only met you once after the reunion breakfast, in the St. Leo Abbey dining room when Mark was there celebrating his 50th year of graduation from SLCP. Mark told me that you were going to speak at our parish (St. Anthony of Padua) on a Saturday morning a long time ago, and I wasn't able to go see you. I had noticed that I hadn't heard from Mark for a long time, since he was always the first to respond to any messages I sent out about Holy Name/SLCP alumni events, and I'm sorry that I didn't inquire why I wasn't hearing from him. You were both exemplary Catholics, and I know he earned his way directly to Heaven by his example of following in the steps of Christ. I'm so sorry for your loss. He was such a kind and gentle soldier of Christ. and I will miss him. Last time I saw Mark was at George Ziegler's funeral.
Sincerely, Maggie Herrmann Beaumont (HNA 1957)
