Dear Pat and family,
My condolences to you as you grieve Bill. I remember you both well
and your wonderful involement in parish and community. I remember how much he did as a Knight of St. Columbia, and the precial way you both hosted the marathon walkers/riders for John Ireland School. I know you were bother well respected in the farming and civic community. He was recommended to me for a diocesan medal by our staff and when I went to present it to him, he very strongly declined it. He said he didn't believe in medals for doing his christian duty! That was a first for me. However, when my name was proposed for the same diocesan medal for my responce to the Tornadoes, I remembered his respon
...se and refused it too. He was agood teacher, spoke his mind, and pretty good st humour too.

You are all in my heart and prayers.

Love from Ireland,
Harry
