What can I say? I was overwhelmed by the love, caring and turnout at my Saturday Retirement Party. Thank you to Mark Lunde and the Planning Committee, the Food and Refreshment Group, and everyone who worked so hard to make the evening so memorable. Thank you to Fr. Nguyen, Pastor, and my priest friends - Father Douglas, Father Basso, Father Jerry, Fr. Armando, Fr. Magnano and Dick Eberle, who took time to share the evening with me. And thank you to the many parishioners, past and present, for the kind words and best wishes. I feel greatly blessed.
