Guest Book Highlights

June 17, 2019 "To the lovely Chase family, and especially our old Loyola friend Dooky, Maureen and I are honored to have met your Mom at the restaurant, and are surely glad we did, while there was still time. And get this, in 2006 we were in Martha's Vineyard, Massachusetts and sure enough there was an article in their local daily newspaper--Leah was raising money for storm victims up there, and at first we were amazed, and then after thinking about it, it was sort of natural for her to help others. We know she's smiling down on her family now.
