Comments: Wow Don. I never heard that story about Sister M.A. But I believe you. She was always looking to make a buck.My Dad was a steeplejack for the city & he spent quite a bit of time maintaining Billy Penn's statue in fact,last month the Inquirer posted an old picture of him & his crew hanging on singular chairs performing maintenance on the tower clock. Jerry Doyle once did a cartoon on them doing the work. Yes Sister was really proud of her brother.
Comments: Yes I remember Sr Maria amputate telling she had a bother Jerry Doyle I think was his name, who drew for the Daily News. She invited the students to bring in drawing they did and he would autograph them. Once he gave her 10 dollars to give to the class. She changed the ten dollars into 10, 1, dollar bills and raffled them off to the class. The only time in my life I ever won anything.
Comments: Dear Dave, and the Kerbaugh St. gang. Glad to hear you had a great trip. In a previous E-mail I asked about a Joe Donnelly. I checked my 1955 NECHS yearbook, and Joe's address was listed as 1356 Kerbaugh, which would have been a house or two off of Broad Street. Any info from anyone on Joe or his whereabouts? OBIE

Comments: Home again! Was a great trip. My younger brother and 14 of his family joined my group. My kids didn't know they had that many relatives. Wait till they meet the herget side. It was very enjoyable. Watched what I ate and drank, had two Maker's Mark and water the entire trip. Thought if I got plastered, someone might through me over. Not really, just that I have cut down from a fifth of Scotch a week to a social drink now and again. Made me a little sad that at 79, I was oldest member of the tribe there. Starting to get lonely at the top. Lost my Mary, sister Cathy,cousins Madelaine,Agnes and brother in law, Phil all since last September. I just have to remember we don't get out of here alive and hope I go to a better place. I do wish that everyone had a good 4th. Sorry to read that Kingy passed.

Comments: To Don King..... I am sorry to hear about the passing of your brother....he, as well as you, are in my prayers....and for sure if he went to SSS he is in Heaven with loved ones and friends....
Comments: I am sad to report the death of my brother Jim King. He died with his family around him in a hospital in Northern Thailand. He died of a series of illnesses, including COPD Parkinson heart problems. I never will forget his phone calls to me when I was having by pass surgery. They helped me through a difficult time as he did many time in my life He leaves a wife and 2 children. So here's to a great brother who found the peace and love he so richly deserved
