    We lived across the alley from the Welch’s and frequently walked to St.Joes together.
    I remember many a bacon sandwich on Saturday mornings with Kids all around the kitchen table.
    This Family had a large statue of the Blessed Virgin Mary in the entrance of their home where they recited the Rosary together every evening. Their deep Faith was evident in every facet of their lives.
    Sheila was an infant when we moved but I have no doubt that she was just as wonderful as the rest of her beautiful Family.
    The Pat and Martha Callahan Family
