Dear Family All,
In just a few days we will be celebrating Christmas and usually by this time, you would have received a card from me. As some of you know, I had hip replacement surgery in late November (which iscoming along splendidly!!) As a result I have gotten behind in my greetings and beg your indulgence to allow this letter to serve as my Christmas greetings to all of you.
I missed our Christmas concert in mid December - even though I had rehearsed for some months in advance. However, I am looking forward to preparation for Christmas mid-night Mass, which is a big deal in our parish - orchestra,et al.
Please keep your cards (and pictures) coming as they mean so much to me.
God bless you all - and may the coming year be filled with good health, happiness and prosperity to you all!
