That smile!

Monday, Jul. 19, 2010

I'll miss Father's smile and the joy behind it. Reared Catholic, I came to SCU from the high-tech community, so I was unfamiliar with how to address the priests in the work place. The first time I spoke with Father, it was on the phone. I asked him what I should call him. And, he said, "You can call me whatever you want, but don't call me late for dinner." Seriously! And then he laughed that delightful laugh! When I finally met him in person, I saw the smile and it made my heart sing. I hope the angels appreciate your cooking, Father. Loved you dearly and will miss you terribly.
