Last week was very hard for me, my brother-in-law Mike died on Monday, November 18. I told my sister-in-law that I was really very sad that her husband died but most of my tears are going to be for missing Tommy. So Tommy’s sister lost him and her husband in eight months, we are going to have to be strong through the holidays. When the bag piper played Danny Boy not a dry eye in the house. The after party was at the same bar Tommy’s was in, typical Irish wake, lots of drinking and laughing telling stories.  Read more

Tommy’s sister’s husband, Mike, is dying and I was down in Queens for the last four days to sit with her. My sister-in-law’s name is Eileen. She will have lost her oldest brother and husband within months. So sad—life is so short. Tommy was 66 and Mike is 67; so young. On the way back upstate I had such a strong urge to go sit with Friar Bill. He is only 10 minutes off of Interstate 87. We sat and watched football, and he had me laughing, telling me stories. He is very happy to report that after 10 months and failing six throat swallow tests, he finally passed.  Read more

I just got back from Queens. My sister, brother and I went to Citi Field to see the World Series, yes, that awful game number four. I just watched game number five, and the KC Royals deserve a congratulations. Having been a Mets fan all my life, you’d think I would be used to the disappointments, but it still stings and hurts.  Read more

When I go away for the weekend, I always have a great time. This weekend I stayed home and had a good time. Thursday night I went to Peppino’s Restaurant with friends for dinner. Saturday I went and hung out with my friend Olga, who is housebound. I did not want to go just sit in the house, so on my way home I stopped at Tony’s on The Lake and watched the Mets game; very glad they won. Sunday I met friends at Heinle’s for breakfast; had good food, good laughs. Out and about were Jo and Jack Kelly, Helene Indelicate and her friend Joy, and Earl Burch.  Read more

I feel like a 100-year-old—sore bones, can hardly talk, back hurts, hips are out of whack—but boy did I have fun at my cousin’s 50th wedding anniversary, dancing, singing and having a great time with family. I was up partying until 2 a.m. Friday and Saturday nights. I drank water and watched everyone else get smashed. I said to myself, “Thank God I do not drink; I would have such a hangover tomorrow.” I have such a big family, cousins all over the world. I love each and every one of them, and we all get along.  Read more

I spent a very lovely Sunday afternoon with Fr. Bill watching the Giants football game; they had to lose in the last few minutes. Fr. Bill informed me that he has been in the friary for over a year. He is talking so much better, and he is able to walk to the nurses’ station with a walker and a physical therapist. He says hello and sends his love.  Read more

There is nothing like a family get-together. Last weekend my cousins from England came to New York City for a visit. A bunch of us met at my cousin’s house in Queens, and we had a great time. I am planning my trip back over there for next May. This is the cousin and his wife whose wedding I went over there to attend. His great-grandmother and my great-grandfather are brother and sister on my mother’s side. I am truly blessed with a big family and cousins all over the world.  Read more

I drove in that nasty storm, thunder, lighting, flooding on Thursday to go visit Fr. Bill. As soon as I got inside the rain started to stop. Fr. Bill is going to therapy, getting stronger and holding his own. As we are sitting in his room he opened his drawer and showed me all the return addresses from the cards he got from all of you. He sends his love and thanks you for all the prayers and cards. As I left fathers it started raining again, took me two hours to get to Queens to be with my sister for her 62nd birthday.  Read more
