Father Theobald officiated at my wedding in 1963. He was wonderful and amusing. We returned to Montclair on our 50th to have him bless our wedding but all I found was a church with chains on the doors and not a priest or nun to be found! I was appalled! His sense of humor has always been with me. On our wedding day as my soon to be husband and I kneeled at the altar Father bent down to the goom and said "please relax the last wedding I did the goom fainted". He was amazing. He is in my prayers. Rest in peace.

Fr. Charlie was a very dear person. I was one of his "angels" as were so many others. The memories are flooding my heart. Until we meet again...
