Remember last week I blogged about reconnecting with an old friend from childhood, thanks to the Loving Local Blogathon. Mike Belsole and I went to grade school together and part of high school (until he transferred) and haven't seen each other in over 40 years but, thanks to the blogathon we have been back in touch. Today he sent me two wonderful old photos I'd totally forgotten about. Both are taken on the altar of Queen of the World Church in St. Marys, PA where we both grew up.
This is our First Holy Communion picture:
And this is from our Confirmation:
I LOVE these pictures. I have been studying them trying to identify as many of the dear old faces as I can. What a treat! It's so wonderful to have a dear old friend back in my life. Thanks, Mike, and thanks, Tinky, again! It wouldn't have happened without your blogathon.
Thanks for reading.
