Assumption Church and an Update


This building is Assumption Church in downtown St. Paul. I am still in Green Bay, WI but will return home tomorrow. After another week or two I shall go back to Green Bay to be with my sister after she has been discharged from the hospital. She just got out of ICU and was informed of her son's death and funeral which was held last Monday, June 4. (See the previous post for the details) It has been very difficult but an experience which I and her family have been able to endure because of the many thoughtful friends who have sent us strength through sympathy and encouraging comments. Thank you all.
