Letters to the Editor

A Memory of Cardinal Egan

Dear Editor: I would like to share some thoughts on the late Edward Cardinal Egan, a real friend. I met the cardinal at Sacred Heart Chapel in Manhattan about five years ago. A short time after our meeting, he called me at home since he heard of my upcoming surgery.

He also wrote me a letter. Quoting the cardinal, “the chemo and the rest are not going to be easy sailing, still do what the doctors say. No matter what, be assured of a special place in my prayers and Masses.”

I will never forget his genuine concern and kindness.
