Nancy, I miss taking Holy Communion to you. It is through the Eucharist that we met, when I took Communion to your Paul when he was sick. You have been my friend for 9 1/2 years and I treasure every minute of that time. We were truly soul sisters. On Wednesday morning, when your body was being taken back to Closter, I stood by my front door looking at the morning sky. There was a light hovering over the horizon. At first I thought that it was a star, then I realized that it was the plane with your body. You were telling me good-by. When I drive by your house there is such a loneliness that comes over me. I will love you forever.

Nancy, you were always very good to me.
I did not get to see you that often when
you lived in Closter, but you and Paul were always on my mind. I thank Tom Gorman for introducing us. Now the three of you can have those old chats again. Always enjoyed him bringing me with him to visit both of you.
Nancy, you are in the "Palm of God's Hand" now. Peace be with you. You were one SPECIAL lady. Love and God Bless Carol Taege
