LETTERS FROM THE ISLAND: Expressing our condolences


Niagara Gazette — Within recent memory Sharon has bid farewell to her husband, her father and to NU’s Brother Augustine, her lifelong mentor and associate. Faith and family were sustaining her at the chapel Monday but it has been a hard time. Prayers and soft words are in order.

We take comfort in realizing that our funeral frequency results partially from associating with people in so many different fields. Count our blessings, even as we bid them farewell.

On lighter notes, our grandson Doug, a budding highway engineer, picked up his Masters at Pitt last weekend; the Rotary’s annual Paper Shred rips off from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. today near the Key Bank at Grand Island Boulevard and Whitehaven, and the night after Doug portrayed a priest in a play at Canisius College, one of the region’s finest Catholic girls schools announced it was closing its doors. Coincidence? You decide.

Come visit. We’re still here.
