Not sure what to say?

I was a young Catholic boy in the early sixties going to St Mary's school in Beverly Ma. I remember Fr. Darcy as my favorite priest in the parish. I remember him coming to the schoolyard to play Wiffle ball with us. I recall to this day him pitching to our teacher, Sister Genevieve in her penguin habit, and her running the bases with that cardboard bib flipping up into her face. Father Darcy came across as a regular guy who happened to be a priest. God Bless him.

Bishop John Darcy was a wonderful man he was always so kind to my family and to me. My late husband was born in Quincy, Mass. his Mother's maiden name was Mary Moran and of course was the daughter of Irish immigrants. Bishop Darcy resembled my husband's family very much, so my children and I felt a kinmanship with him and that somehow they were connected. We shall miss him very much, may God rest his soul!

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...

It's sad to hear that he passed my grandpa was the same age. I know how it feels. I'm sorry about your loss.

Rest in peace. Thank you for always being at Notre Dame to celebrate the confirmation masses for members of the ND family.
