It is very difficult to even think that in a short few weeks St Thomas Church will no longer be open to parishioners or those of us who grew up attending the church. This church has been such a major part of my family's life that I have been in denial to the fact that it could possibly be closing. Our grandparents (Dick & Celie Byrne) were one of the most positive forces in our lives during the years that they were alive, so we spend a lot of time visiting them in the cemetary now. Every moment that we are there, we relive the years that we attended Mass, visited the residing priests, (Father Foy was the priest that was there when I lived with my grandparents & parents), playing in the cemetary with our cousins, hiding and seeking near Reagan's and Callahan's...just enjoying life in general, with the church as our basis. I cannot even imagine not being able to stop by and visit at will at the church. Considering all of the time that the Byrne grandchildren spent around the church, I now stop with my children and my grandchildren to visit the church and all of its' memories, when we stop to visit our grandparents graves. All of my children know the story behind Carrie Brennan (Father Foy's housekeeper) and I will be sure to keep all of the stories alive. I pray for a miracle daily for the church, but have to assume that God has a greater plan. Thanks to all who will continue to care for the cemetary, as we will never stop coming! My love to all of you. Anne (Matejcek) Becker
