Got the sad news last yesterday that my aunt, Mary Prunty Harold, passed away after years of struggling with Alzheimer's. While in some ways relief, still difficult.
I will travel to the ancestral homeland of Long Island, NY for the funeral mass on Monday.
Keep my mom in your prayers. She grew up as the 13th child of 14 kids of an Irish-Catholic family in NYC. Today, all but mom and two uncles are with Our Lord.
Requiescat in Pace.
