I wrote of the passing of Sammy, the faithful companion of my sister, Jane and favorite of "Uncle Len". This is Sammy in all of his cuteness. We shared eleven years and a month with him, and were blessed.
On the afternoon of the 6th, we were visited by Bishop Edward Malesic for his pastoral visit to the parish of Saint Elizabeth Ann Seton. Here are some of the pictures of the visit.
