Some of Dad's happiest memories were of his childhood
visits to the "convent." He loved being there and he had a
special affection for the good Sisters of St. Benedict. He
never forgot their generosity and kindness to him. We think
he would be pleased if, in lieu of flowers, donations in his
memory were made to the Monastery of St. Gertrude, HC 3, Box
121, Cottonwood, ID 853522.
