|Most impressive list of accomplishments Cuz, but I think I’m most impressed with this one:
Sang & Rang Hand-Bells for J.P II’s visit in 1995
For an old Irishman, that’s very commendable!
In 1976, Polish Cardinal Karol Wojtyla visited Chicago, with stops at my old Catholic high school and at my family’s Polish cemetery – my dear old Polish mother was in heaven. He then returned to Chicago as The Polish Pope (JPII) in 1979, and he was greeted by 500,000 people of Polish ancestry – I was one of them.
As for my accomplishments, my Epitaph will simply read: ‘Old Polish Pee Wee - He tried his best to help our Vets and Pets.’
