Can you think of anything better … than to share with your grand-children – the Orphanage –  that you lived in  “seventy” years ago… and still standing – and as always  – there are children who will need a HOME – – away from  HOME…


Did you ever think  – – that you would attend  a “PICNIC” that was given for all the old “GRADUATES”  – – of German St. Vincent Orphan Home… and you meet a girl from your graduating class  of 1952??? That   was… only 63 years  ago… when you – both  were  young – full of vim and vigor to start a new LIFE – never gave a  thought of conquering the world – –  but I know that –  I have heard that term used in some speeches –   – when something is planned – and no one knows who will be there – – what a joy it is –  to find that    – you are welcomed with  friendship  and someone who really  remembers you – – from  way – back and when!

L to R    That would be  “ME”  and standing in the middle is  –  Theresa Wieland-Eckerl and her husband. The best part of meeting Theresa – – was that she remembered me…so well – that she went into great detail about one of our class assignments …and  was so exact – in  what I had said  – in front of the class – for that special “CLASS”  assignment.  I just LOVE when someone is really paying attention to what is going on – and then can remember it so correctly – – almost… and as if  – – it all just happened…yesterday!

“I hate to… and  still  have to  –  say this…”   “But those who received the  “INVITATION”  and did not show up on SUNDAY – the 27th – missed out on a real good time!”
