Let people know that they’re loved

To the editor:

Upon reading the obituary of Sister Teresa Laurene Creighton (April 4) it made me realize how fortunate I am. I had the pleasure of knowing Sister Teresa Laurene at St. Mary’s School in Canandaigua, where she helped me with my Latin while in training as an altar boy. She was a fine educator and an inspiration to many. Her kindness, encouragement, dedication and, most of all, faith set examples I’ve carried with me all my adult life.

Now, my daughters and I celebrate the Holy Mass at St. Januarius in Naples and we are blessed with Father Mickey McGrath. Sister Teresa Laurene set a foundation in my life and now that foundation is strengthened by that same spirit of goodness and grace. Before those people so meaningful in our lives move away or go on to other challenges, let them know that they are loved — not only by our Father in heaven — by their flock. It is with sadness I see her passing, yet the knowledge of her career is heart-warming.
