I am now in Patna, India.

School Story:

I have been a Marianist since 1963 and after 25 years at Chaminade and at Vincent Gray Alternative High School in East St. Louis, Illinois, I asked to go to Mexico. Being there for 22 years has been one of the greatest graces I have received. At the present time I am in Patna, India, teaching English at Chaminade Training Institute.

I remember very fondly my first contact with the Marianists. It was an orientation, more or less in the spring of 1958 in Room 213 with Bro. Vincent Gray. I was impressed! Later we went to the gym for another orientation session and remember already feeling the McBride spirit there.

Dear Joe, yesterday I sent you an e mail, and today I get a reminder that your birthday is coming! I usually send birthday greetings ahead of time since sometimes the internet here is not functioning. HAPPY BIRTHDAY! I hope that despite being "shut in" and states "shut down", that you celebrate your wonderful life with lots of happiness and hugs...even kisses, if appropriate! I send my love and a big hug! I'm praying for you! HAPPY BIRTHDAY!

Dear Don, Happy Birthday! As usual, I'm early; sometimes internet and being forgetful interfere with my best intentions! I hope you are well and have been well. Thanks for all the wonderful memories of our four years together. I will always be grateful to you and the rest of the Micks for the great accompaniment--no greater preparation for life. I send my love and promise of prayers to you! As you celebrate, I hope you are surrounded by many you love and by many who love you. I'm one! God bless you, Don!

Dear Ray, this is an early Happy Birthday wish, plus the promise of the prayers for you that are always happening! I hope you celebrate your birthday surrounded by people who love you and by those whom you love. Not everyone will be there...like me. I love you and am always grateful for who you are and what you do. Thanks again for being the glue that keeps the Micks of '62 together and family! This is kind of like a novena--9 days more or less--before the big day...prayers, thoughts, memories, thanksgiving for your presence in our lives, my friend.
