Dear Heffernan Family,
My prayers and thoughts are with your family.
I will remember Matt and your family intentions in my rosary.
I'm teaching in Espanola,New Mexico on a Sioux Indian Reservation called Santa Clara.
As you know we all went to St.Sabina grade school and had lots of fun.
This week I'll be celebrating 45 years a brother.
My mother Joanne worked with one of your family members.
Blessings !!!
Br. Tom
