Bishop D'Arcy was such a blessing to me and my family. He was my husband's immigration sponsor when he came to the United States from Ireland to teach theology. He was my friend as I worked as a theology teacher at Bishop Dwenger. He always stopped to talk with us and our daughters anytime he saw us. After his retirement, he would celebrate mass with our parish sometimes. Each time he would give us hugs and talk with us for a while about our lives. He always remembered our daughters names and asked about them. I recall one time meeting up with Bishop at a diocesan event. We sat down with him and shared lunch. then after lunch ended, we sat for a while longer after others had left while Bishop played with our two young daughters, probably 2 and 4 at the time, while they ran under the table. He was able to just be with us in the moment...loving the gift of life. Bishop has always shown me how to live and for that I will always remember him.

In late winter of 2011 my husband was receiving radiation treatment at the same time as Father. I would say "Hello" to him as he left each day. One afternoon he came over to me and asked if he knew me. I said that I wasn't Catholic, but that I felt that I knew him because I has seen him on tv so many times when my husband and I had lived in South Bend. He mentioned his love for "his lady". He asked if I was a patient and I responded that my husband was. He said that he would include my husband in his prayers. Father is my example of a Godly person. He offered a prayer for someone who was needing it, even though he was not a member of his branch of Christianity. Thank you again Father, and rest in peace. Elaine Beeching
