Kathleen, I am so sorry to hear about your sister. We saw each other several years ago and surprised she remembered me. I remember one year on Christmas visiting your sister at her home after attending mass (your parents were so kind to take my brother and myself to mass for about a year). Remember one time the priest stepped out of the confessional to give us a lecturer. Love You and your family Markay
