"My dad was my hero, not because he was extraordinary in any way. In fact, he could sometimes disappoint me. He seemed to have all the answers when I was young, and even if he didn’t as I matured into a man, time had softened his rough edges, and he aged gracefully, unlike the junky old cars he was fond of buying."

There we will be a Virtual Memorial Mass for Joseph Friday May 15 beginning at 11am. You can live stream on Zoom here.
