I met Mr. & Mrs. Hogan at their daughter, Eileen and Keith's wedding many years ago in Minneapolis. I felt like I knew them even though it was the first time I had officially met them. Eileen and I worked together for several years at Northwest Airlines in the Twin Cities, and we were both from families of six kids, and Irish Catholic.Eileen had a little French mixed in with the Irish, and I had the Italian mixture. We had similar stories----she had the Green Bay version, and I had the Minnesota version. Eileen always talked lovingly about her family and the traditions she had growing up.
My deepest sympathy to the entire Hogan Family on the loss of your patriarch, husband, dad and grandfather.
