In 1997, for my 40th birthday I invited several Salvatorian friends to come out to our rented Lake Beulah cottage to spend the day. It was a perfect one. We swam, ate chocolate cake, laughed, blew bubbles in the sun and even got to fish off the pier. I have pictures from then which remind me of two friends who came and have since passed: Sr. Pat Koehn, with whom I made first vows in 1976; and Sr. Bernice Smith, a parishioner at Mt. Pleasant when I served there.
