He did it all out of the kindness of his heart. Hopefully the beautiful little bench will remind Valarie of the boy she didn’t get to meet, but someday will in heaven. We hope that her healing will begin and he pain of her son’s passing will be less severe in time. Share Gerald’s wonderful act of kindness with others by sharing this article.

The kindness of strangers.

Hope I can emulate that.

PRAYERSREQUESTED: Colon, Philip J. (MC1962) reports more critical “stuff”!

2014-May-25

Good Evening All,

Jim Smith tells us that his surgery scheduled for the 27th has been put off for a week. The surgeon has a couple of more urgent operations of a greater critical nature that have to be dealt with. Good that Jim’s surgery is not life threatening, however, as Jim and his family have gotten themselves up to deal with it, the postponement comes as a let down. Please keep Jim in your prayers and a thought for those other two folks will be a good thing. Thank you. Will keep you posted. God Bless.

MOBIT: Wife of Sylvester, Gaetano “Guy” [MC???? RIP] passes

2014-May-27

http://poststar.com/lifestyles/announcements/obituaries/elizabeth-betty-rice-sylvester/article_ddab75ec-e549-11e3-a3c4-0019bb2963f4.html

Elizabeth ‘Betty’ (Rice) Sylvester

ONG LAKE — Elizabeth “Betty” (Rice) Sylvester, 98, was a true Long Laker, and at the time of her death, the oldest resident of the town. She was born Aug. 29, 1915, in Long Lake, in the “Farm House” on the property owned by her grandfather, John Rice, which is now the location of the Long Lake Arts Camp.

Betty graduated from Long Lake Central School and went on to dental hygienist school on Welfare Island in New York City. She met her husband, Guy, at the former Lakeside Restaurant when he was at the Manhattan College engineering program’s Surveying Camp at North Point. They married Oct. 17, 1938, and enjoyed 59 years together.

Throughout her life, Betty enjoyed visiting with her many friends, being a homemaker, reading, travel, handwork and volunteering. She was a dedicated life long member of Saint Henry’s Church, with a special devotion to the Blessed Virgin Mary. But her greatest love was being with and caring for her family. Betty’s enthusiasm for life, and especially her caring and generous spirit, will be missed by all of us.

Betty was predeceased by her husband, Gaetano “Guy” Sylvester, and her sister, Sister Helen Rice, RSM.

Betty is survived by her daughter, Helen Kentile and her husband, Bob Kentile, of Long Lake, and her younger daughter, Mary Beth Harris, and her husband, Terry of Hinesburg, Vermont. She is also survived by her five grandchildren: Mark Kentile, Dan Kentile, Greg Kentile, Blake Harris and Julia Harris, and her five great-grandchildren, Adam Kentile, Evan Kentile, Nathan Kentile, Megan Kentile and Elijah Aguier.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to The Long Lake Chapter of the Catholic Daughters of America of which Betty was a charter member in 1949, and a lifelong member of 65 years.

The family will receive friends from 10 to 11 a.m. Saturday, May 31, at St. Henry’s Church in Long Lake followed by a Mass of Christian burial.

A luncheon reception will be held in the Parish Hall immediately following the burial.

Anthony Philip Blose (1932 – 2014)
Obituary

Anthony Philip Blose, 82, died May 21, 2014, at HPH Hospice in Brooksville, Florida.

Mr. Blose was born May 9, 1932, in Yonkers, New York, to Anthony and Philomena (Bove) Blose. He was their first child. He attended Gorton High School in Yonkers, New York. He continued his education at Manhattan College in Riverdale, New York, graduating in 1954 with a degree in business administration. He was a star athlete in both high school and college, playing varsity baseball and basketball. He also played minor league baseball in New England during his college summers.

After graduating college, Mr. Blose married his childhood sweetheart, Theresa Maddalo, and entered the U.S. Army. His new bride joined him during his 18-month deployment to Germany, where their son Anthony was born. After leaving the Army, Mr. Blose began a 34-year career with the phone company, working for N.Y. Telephone, NYNEX, and Verizon. He retired as an assistant vice president of Verizon in 1991.

During his retirement years, he and his wife divided their time between homes in Woodloch Springs Country Club in Hawley, Pennsylvania, and Southern Woods Country Club in Homosassa, Florida. Mr. and Mrs. Blose enjoyed 60 years of married life together, and were blessed with three daughters after the birth of their son, Janet, Theresa, and Elizabeth. He and his wife were both avid golfers, playing courses in all 50 states as well as in Scotland, Ireland, Canada, and Mexico.

He is survived by his loving wife; four children; and nine grandchildren. He leaves two brothers, Philip and Robert; and his sister, Barbara Spear.

Arrangements were with Wilder Funeral Home, Homosassa. Burial took place at Florida National Cemetery in Bushnell.

Introduction: I have lived Life Feast or Famine, discovering ALMOST, and VERY CLOSE to too late, what a magical love, and what treasures I cared nothing for, almost allowed to UN create: SO, I gathered the strands, the slight pieces of a huge tapestry, certainly involving MUCH more than me, the Looms spin, wider shins, backwards, they whir, and where the air was empty, my life and the whole KA of the OTHERS in my KATET, the MANY of this EARTH, and the Unkin , Annuniki who gave Birth, began to emerge, color, movement from empty air. Showing me the wonders, I always did truly  care. this is not over yet.HOW do people think I could  even forget? I am good as any of thee, eccentric, so, maybe, my intelligence does not hang on the status quo, or conservative approval, it is what I know right and wrong to be, and I am not a follower of Institutions Bells or Whistles, pledges of allegiance, though I love WHAT MY COUNTRY COULD BE, and the BRAVERY of the PEOPLE ( “let’s Roll”) It is the Corruption and the fools the Conservatives take us for…..

NOW I travel for the corporation, and bring collections to the stores, leaving time for me to spend more and more time with my Home, My Beloved MAN, who has stuck with me through my haughty snotty times, and I wish to fall off the work, until I am a housewife, my HUSBAND and my home are both the best anyone could know.

Francis Xavier (Frank) Murphy
By Staff Reports posted 15 hours ago May 29th, 2014

Francis Xavier (Frank) Murphy

Francis Xavier (Frank) Murphy, 86, retired illustrator for American Airlines. Survived by wife, Mary Betty, and daughters, Mary Jo Kinzie (Jack), Katie, Clare Mukerjee (Subir), Ellen (Steve Unterman), Kris, Molly (Karl Rambo), and Aileen (Paul Heilker); sisters, Margaret Hofmann and Elizabeth Murphy; sister-in-law, Leona Schwartz. Grandfather to Kimberly Mukerjee, Anthony Mukerjee, Sophie Unterman, Eli Heilker, Phoebe Unterman, Ellie Rambo, Madeleine Murphy and Olivia Rambo. Uncle to nine and great-uncle to many more. He grew up in Raleigh, NC, moved to New York City to attend Manhattan College at the age of 16. He served in Korea from 1946-1948 and returned to New York and married Mary Betty Keegan, with whom he thrived for more than 62 years.

Though he illustrated for a living, he also painted signs, silk-screened T-shirts, repaired VWs, worked night jobs, and finished his degree at TU, graduating at the age of 50. He loved annual family vacations: Blue Ridge Parkway, the northwest, the outer banks of North Carolina. He celebrated St. Patrick’s Day by sending shamrock stickers to his grandkids. He was too young for the Greatest Generation, so he invented his own generation.

He made up George The Bear stories every night when the kids were little. He was up late to talk when teenagers came home, and when they became parents, he was there to get to know his grandchildren. His door was always open to friends and anyone who wanted to drink coffee and talk. He was the best listener ever.

When Mary Betty’s health declined, he created a safe and vibrant world for her as long as he could. The man raised by two widows and two older sisters, then fathered seven daughters, was surrounded by the love of those women for whom he always will be, and actually originally was, the most interesting man in the world. He was one of a kind; no definition can capture his uniqueness.

Memorial and reception at family home Saturday, May 31st, 2-5 pm.

Nellie has always loved fashion and everything surrounding it. Her sense of style is contemporary and timeless. Born in Brooklyn, New York, Nellie’s interests in fashion and business took root early – while still in school, she represented a major department store as an “upcoming model student”, briefly attended Fashion Industries HS in Manhattan with a concentration in fashion and marketing and (like Sandra Bullock) was voted “Miss Congeniality”! Nellie’s culinary interests took hold when she became a vegetarian many years ago. As a result, she began to focus on vegetarian cuisine and wholesome, organic products and menus. She has served as a legal administrator and paralegal in the legal field for over 20 years, often dealing with challenging attorneys and staff. She also was an editor at a publications company.

Nellie attended Manhattan College and majored in Business Administration/Marketing. She is an avid reader and sports enthusiast. She enjoys traveling and spending time with family and friends. She is married with two rapidly growing children and lives “happily ever after” in Queens, New York.

Mason’s mark: Richard ‘Doc’ Mason retires from Santa Cruz County Coroner’s Unit
By Stephen Baxter
Posted: 05/29/2014 07:38:39 PM PDT

*** begin quote ***

SANTA CRUZ >> Finding a cause of death is just the start of an investigation for Richard “Doc” Mason, Santa Cruz County’s forensic pathologist of 34 years.

Mason, who will retire Friday at age 78, doesn’t just explain that a man was murdered with two stabs in the chest, for instance, he finds answers to dozens of questions that police want and prosecutors need to find and convict the killer.

*** and ***

He found an interest in guns at 16, which he said was unusual for a city kid. He earned degrees from Manhattan College and St. John’s University on his way to the Boston University School of Medicine.

ENDNOTE: HIROSHIMA AND NAGASAKI by Petrone, Louis S. “Key West Lou” (MC1957)

[JR: As is my usual procedure, when I read an “endnote” that I wish I had written, especially one done by a fellow Jasper, I’ll defer to my learned fellow Alum. Please take the time to read it in its entirety. If you do and are not moved, then nothing I would have written would have been better. I’ll quote one small section that I found moving.]

*** begin quote ***

Two of the speakers were survivors of the bombings. Relatively close to me in age. Setusko Thurlow is today 81 years old. At the time the bomb fell on Hiroshima, she was 13. Yasuaki Yamashita is today 74 years old. At the time the bomb fell on Nagasaki, he was 6.

Moderating the event was Clifton Truman Daniel. Daniel is President Truman’s oldest grandson.

President Truman made the decision to drop the atomic bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki.
The two survivors are part of the Hibakusha Stories Group. Hibakusha is Japanese for atomic bomb survivors, a bomb affected group. The group is anti-nuclear weapons. It seeks the destruction of all nuclear weapons. Ban the bomb!

The personal stories of both survivors were compelling. They were there. Their lives thereafter significantly affected by the bombings.

Setsuko Thurlow again was 13 years old and living in Hiroshima at the time. She was an eighth grade student. However, she and other young school children did not attend school any longer. The men and young lads were fighting in the islands. Japan was losing the war. Only young children and women were left in Japan proper. They had to help in the war effort.

Setsuko was part of a group of thirty girls who were working at Army headquarters. Setsuko’s job was decoding secret messages from the front lines. She was attending an assembly meeting when the bomb fell. The time was 8 am. Suddenly, there was a flash. Beyond description.  All she said of the bombing itself was “…..a real catastrophe.” She added, “No human being deserves that kind of experience.”

*** end quote ***

[JR: Readers of my blog know that Harry S. is close to the top of my worst Presidents. Specifically he’s #3. And it’s all about Abombing two civilian targets when the Japanese were trying to surrender. Special place in Hell imho for this atrocity. Remember I’m a little L libertarian who believes in the Zero Aggression Principle. This is a national disgrace. And, makes me sad that my country was so foolish and easily deceived. Seems fitting on Memorial Day to ask ourselves some very tough questions. That’s why I say ‘bring the girls and boys home now; we can always send politicians and bureaucrats!’]
