50 Year Reunion Questionnaire Response:

When we toured Ireland and visited my Grandpa Daniel Leahey Moore’s dairy farm in Castle Mahon, New Castle West, County Limerick, Ireland, I never dreamed I’d kiss the Blarney Stone and get, not the gift of eloquence, but the Luck O’ the Irish. Amongst my gifts are:

  1. A wonderfully happy marriage to my high school sweetheart, Jack
  2. Three beautiful, intelligent daughters, Shannon, Cathleen and Shawn, who married kind, wonderful Catholic men who can cook (Goodness knows, the girls sure can’t!)
  3. The ability to fall off a 30 foot cliff, land amongst boulders in a muddy creek bed, and get dirt in my hair as a result.
  4. Five precious grandsons, who make our Saugatuck, Michigan,vacations exhaustingly fun (and, where do all of those dirty socks come from!??)
  5. An adorable new granddaughter, Ashlynn Maureen, who, despite a large C-cam tumor in one lung, discovered in utero, was born with no evidence of that pathology. (We love Miracles!)
  6. A 30+ year career as a speech pathologist to special needs preschool children, teaching them communication skills and getting paid to play every day, and,
  7. A drastically failing aortic valve, accidentally discovered when I was asymptomatic and feelling strong and wonderful. (Yep-I’m a cyborg now-artificial parts that serve me well)

I count my Blessings and hope you also have been blessed.

Sorry we can’t be at the reunion- the Midwest Senior Softball Tournament got moved up to June. See “ya at the next reunion in 2034! And, until we meet again, may God hold you in the palm of His hand.

Have a great time!
