I remember how sweet Vicky was towards me when we shared Eucharistic Minister duties together. She introduced herself right away and I just felt close to her ever since. We often sat one pew behind the other for quite some time until all the Mass schedules changed. Our deepest sympathies to you Ron and your entire family. God bless you all.
