  3. CandleImageI am going to miss Nora’s beautiful smile! I would see it always when I greeted Nora and Joe at the 11:00 o’clock Mass. One lovely afternoon I was invited to their home for tea and her delicious Irish Soda Bread. We sat together and Joe turned on a wonderful video of Ireland. As we watched together she and Joe planted the seed in my heart to one day take a trip there. It happened and when I shared my pictures with her she said that castle is in my hometown of Kinvara. And so when I look at that picture I will always remember the “Galway Girl”, my friend Nora. Bless you Sweet Lady.
