This kind, loving , gentle nun taught me 1st
grade at Corpus Christi in 1947. She was
the embodiment of a true Franciscan. To
elaborate on a true superlative is
impossible and superfluous. She will
forever be in my prayers.

The other night, I had a dream about Sister
Bonaventure--my first grade teacher--
googled her and found she had passed. That
cheerful face and sweetness had me totally
enthralled as a 6-year-old. She "got me." I
loved her. Everyone should start school with a
Sister Bonaventure. How many lives she must
have colored with her sunshine. Another fine
Franciscan woman to see in heaven.
