Hi Anne - good to know that you're doing well and surviving this Arctic blast and snow... Six inches on my street today - bummer! It's nice that you do church work and have church friends and they are the best kind to have, definitely! When I was in HS I had a steady girlfriend and she was Catholic and she did a lot of volunteer work for St. Kate's (Saint Catherine Church) and I tagged along but was a Protestant but learned a lot. The priest told us a joke once, - "Mary had a little lamb... and the doctor fainted"... HA! My girlfriend and I laughed so loud and the priest seemed to enjoy our laughter but we were laughing at how corny the joke was and not because it was funny but the priest didn't know that, I hope. Have you ever thought about the difference between the Catholic cross and the Protestant cross? The Catholic cross has Christ still on it being crucified and the Protestant cross does not have Christ on it to represent the Resurrection. I have no problem with either cross because people should be reminded of His suffering on the cross as well as His resurrection - know what I mean, Anne. We got our driveway and side walks shoveled clear this afternoon and cleaned the cars off and it became so bright when the sun came out! When I walked back into our house I was blind - ha! I am happy for you with getting dental coverage. Good for you!.. Unfortunately, our co-pay has gone up and some benefits cut thanks to Obamacare! The doctor we had (for many years) just quit his practice and moved back to Canada!!! We were very lucky to find another doctor to take us in. Yes, I too remember that song by Foreigner and Wynonna Judd also sang a wonderful version of the same song. It was a great song... I wish they had songs like that today. I bought a 40 pound bag of corn and have been feeding the squirrels both in front and the back yard.. Last night, late, I looked out my bedroom window and saw a rabbit munching on the corn and a pair of red birds have been eating it also during the day time. This is the second 40 pound bag I bought in 6 months and these creatures are getting fat. I am still doing my diet gig and have gained two pounds but only because I haven't done my walking exercise as much because of the nasty weather but I am watching what I eat and it's really hard to pass up that pastry section at Meijer's when grocery shopping! It takes will power and those chocolate cakes look SO good! Hang in there, Anne, keep the Faith and no sweets for you, sweetie - later gator - Tom

Hi Anne!

Sorry for my late response. I've been so busy! I hope you've been doing well.

Last night I wasn't feeling too good, and it took me hours to fall asleep because I was hot and feeling nauseous, so I went downstairs to take my temp and it turns out I had a fever. I just woke up a little while ago and I'm still feeling pretty down, not as nauseous as before. My fever went down a little bit as well which is nice. I wish Kathleen was here to take care of me. I'm sure she had the magic touch!

I can't believe Kathleen is going to be 94, it just doesn't seem real! I'm sure she would still look beautiful even if she were alive today. I love her so much.

I wish I could go to her grave and drop off some flowers for her, but she's too far away...

I will email her rare pictures to you as soon as I can. I will try to do it today. Do you have a Facebook too?

Dear Anne, Thank you very much for your recent e-mails. I finally figured out out to add photographs and images to the Find a Grave webpage, so I did not have to keep using the same ones provided by the site over and over again. It is refreshing to use new ones that better express my feeling towards the Lord God Christ Jesus and other people whom I leave messages for.
Have a wonderful year and May God Jesus Christ Lord Bless you and your loved ones. Signed, Bennett.

I was very touched by your most recent tribute to the Virgin Mary. Please know that I will be praying for your family and for your financial independence. I myself am trying to make a living as a seamstress, so your reference to Proverbs really struck a chord with me!

Hi Anne - yes, it was a horrible tragedy in France and such a waste of lives but these terrorists have no respect for life or anything holy which they have proven killing innocent women and children even of their own religion. Last weekend world leaders gathered in Paris to give France support and to let the world know they will not tolerate terrorism but where was our President? President Obama didn't even send his Secretary of State to represent America in support of France. What does that say about his leadership and foreign policy and how does that look to the rest of the world? You seem to have a good grip on past history, Anne, and the evils of this world and our leaders should learn from past history but they choose to ignore it which is very sad for our freedoms, America, and for simply what is right. Enough of politics - I do not want to make myself sick thinking about it...... Yesterday was such a pleasant change from the cold snap we've been having so my wife, youngest son, and I took a walk around the 2.5 mile lake loop at Fort Harrison. It felt so good to actually get out and walk for exercise without the wind chill factor stopping us. Luckily, on Friday I purchased a Golden Pass because yesterday they were charging an entrance fee at the gate to the state park! They usually do not charge an entrance fee in January or during cold winter months but I guess they wanted to make money honey as it was very busy with visitors such as we that had cabin fever and wanted to get out and about. So, I plan a repeat today for the exercise but, of course, I plan to be back home for the big game. Go Colts! I am hoping the Colts have a lot of good Luck. Catch you later, Anne, try not to let world affairs get you down, worrying doesn't help anyway but you can write letters to your Senators and Congressmen and send them emails also and that's what I do to blow off steam when depressed over the way this country is heading. God bless America and our men and women in uniform - take care, after while, crocodile - Tom

Hi, Anne!

I changed my icon to an animation of Kathleen, do you like it? :) I have a ton of rare pictures of Kathleen, if you'd like to see them, maybe we could email each other? It's okay if you don't want to.

And yes, going to Kathleen's house in Brookline was a blast. It was a wonderful experience.

I read a sad story about Kathleen... it said that after she heard the news of Billy's passing, she skipped dinner with her family and cried in her room for hours. When she came out, her eyes were said to be very red and swollen. Also after Billy died, Kathleen carried a photo of him in her pocket at all times and was so very sad all the time. She tried not crying though because her father had told her "Kennedys don't cry." So so sad. I know you and I would give Kathleen a big hug if we were friends with her at the time!
