Share with your friends on Facebook

I’ve been living in South Florida for 20 years now. A number of my friends are well into their 90’s. I prize their wisdom and all they have learned in almost a century of living – from the horse and buggy days to everyone around them clutching their smart phones today.

Thanks for your many prayers!
Fr. Med Laz.
