A dear friend of mine passed away last week, on the 27th..
His name was Donald Bird..he had turned 98 the 9th of June.
And he and his beloved Mary had celebrated their 75th wedding anniversary
with a renewal of their wedding vows ceremony,
on June 20th
Over the years we had made plans to meet for his 100th birthday to celebrate..
But that was not to be.
I want to send out condolences to the famiy of this sweet man.
Especially his sister Revenna Mink,
whom I have had the privilage of speaking to a few times on the phone.
He was on webtv for years, and a few of you may remember him.
They held a mass to celebrate his life
Saturday (06/30/12) at 11 at St. Augustine's.
I hope you will add your prayers to mine for this family.
Below is a picture of Don and Mary taken back in the 1940s
when they lived in Texas
and another taken just a few years ago






Rest In Peace Dear Friend!
You will be sorely missed.
