Sr. Mary Michaeline Bosco of Olean, NY was and will always be my most beloved best friend. We met in the 1970s at Villa Maria High School in Buffalo, NY. She was a home economics teacher and sophomore advisor. I was a fundraiser. We connected instantly. I helped her raise money for her class for many years. We soon became best friends. She was the beacon of Christian values I needed. I am a United Methodist. I would have been Catholic but for my lineage. We are both Christians, and that was all encompassing for us to accept each other.
My wife of 55 years and I sat at her Jubilee table. She passed just before Christmas 2000. She has influenced our lives beyond description. She is now with Jesus. Her students are passing “his word.” Her life on Earth mattered. Please say a prayer for her soul. We do every day. What are the chances we would have crossed paths in this life? I know it was meant to be! Pax vobiscum.
