After Webster University Commencement, I flew (literally) across the state to see my family, gathered in one place for the first time since my father’s funeral seventeen months ago.
All three of Richard & Marie’s children were there, along with the five grandchildren, and two great-grandchildren. The occasion was a celebration of Luke’s 18 years, and his graduation from high school.
Easter IV was celebrated at St. Mary’s Episcopal Church (AKA Smokey Mary’s), where I sat by and sang with Leona Schaefer, with my long-time acquaintance Geoffrey Wilcken at the organ, and my colleague Tony Maglione leading the choir. The liturgy was perfect!
