  1. Sister was my favorite teacher,young at heartand truly cared about all of her students we knew and appreciated it. Sister taught me in 1965 at Saint Emydius in San Francisco. Sister was very energetic and that energy spread throughout our class.Sister and I became good friends and stayed in touch t
    hruout the decades.She was so loving ,kind and understanding,she had that wonderfu laugh,twinkle in her eyes and was so appreciative of even the little things.Years ago, Sister was visiting her Sister in San Diego,Sister and I had lunch and visited a bit of San Diego.Years before our visit Sister was a teacher at OlP.Going back to 1965 Saint Emdius,I will give you an example of how easy going Sister was.Class was about to start, Randy my friend andI were in the coat room in theback of the class throwing basket balls at one another.Sister walked to us just as I was throwing the ball at Randy, Randy ducked and the basket ball hit Sister in the head ,if it had hit a different Sister I might had quickly left the room and joined the foreign legion. Sister didn’t get upset! I miss Sister dearly and I will always Iove her.A few years ago She had mentioned that when she left the Chapel some one taken her water bottle. I mailed Sister a couple of water bottles and a ball cap they had the U.S Marine Corps logo on them.I told hershe was now an honorary Marine,she laughed,she liked my corny sense of humor.Many of us have tears now yes,it’s painful!She is longer in pain and those of us that have accepted our LORD JESUS as our SAVIOR know that Sister is with our FATHER GOD and Sisters loved ones for eternity !!!! To Sister’s family and other loved ones you have my heart felt condolence. As you know because of the virus there isn’t a date set for Sisters service.It would be very much appreciated if when and where is determined that some one will call me.
