My wife and I also visited our families at Holy Cross last week.
It is good IMO to remember those that have left us but have given so much to us. As a child, I was “dragged” to visit my grandparents who are at the Italian Cemetery. I guess those trips left an impression and a sense of duty to continue the tradition. I am now quite glad my mother “dragged” me there.
While I am first generation Irish on my father's side I have never set foot in Malloy’s. I do not know why but it has never happened.
