We may have talked about Sacred Heart Orphanage before. You were living in Monroe.. Monroe was where the SHO Summer Camp was with the FIVE Bungalows up the Hill from the Nuns House.. the Camp Swimming Pool just down the road I got out of the Orphanage in about 1950 spent a total of 10 years there.. When I finished Grammer School. I got out of SHO...With mixed feelings..
I Remember Sisters Gertrude,Kathleen,Henretta, Sister Agnes, Sister Valariani and I also remember the 2 Nuns who did all the food cooking in the Kitchenfor all us kids and all the Nuns had their Meals together in a large Dinning room by the Entrance Door near the Oval Driveway on Belgrove Avenue side of SHO. We guys probably remember the SHO experience like it was just Yesterday..
I helped the SHO Nuns some years ago Defend against a sexual Abuse Lawsuit..I had to testify under Oath and gave all the Attorneys Hours and Hours of answers at the Depositions.I have a copy of the Legal Book filled with the all the questions I had to answer.The Nuns Lawyers sent a stretch Limo to Pick me up and take me to the Lawyers Office on Broadway in New York City.
THAT WAS MY PAYBACK FOR ALL THAT THE NUNS DID TO RAISE, FEED,CLOTH and Educate all of us....
