Wendy, I read your message and wish that there was something I could tell you that would help in understanding more. At the time I was at St. Joes' i was only 5-6 and was in what they called the "little house", so I probably was too young to know him, although my older sister or brother might remember him, and I will ask them. I do know for certain that we worked during the summer picking beans for the orphanage. Also, I remember going to spend some time on a farm for a few weeks in the summer that was either affiliated with the orphanage or the people just did this on their own to give us some semblance of family life. The orphanage was not a terrible place, but it had many rules and it was best to obey them, as unfortunately some of the older nuns were very severe in their punishments. If there any specific things you would like to ask me please feel free to e-mail me or post another message. In the mean time, I will try to find out if by chance my sister or brother remember him. Good luck in your search for information, and I am sorry about the lung cancer, my father also died from this dreaded disease.
