I have been going to call Minnie and put it off. Now I feel so bad that I didn't. I would see her at mass and tease her about being my girl friend. We had some great chats. She is one of those people that makes you feel good to be around. She has always been in my prayers. I have been blessed and so has her family that our lives have crossed hers. Bless her Lord Jesus and take her into your flock.
