Me and my classmate, Bishop Alexander Sample

Last weekend I had the privilege to address the 18th annual Marian Conference in Boyne Falls, Michigan. Among the other speakers was my high school classmate, the Most Reverend Alexander K. Sample, Catholic Bishop of Marquette, Michigan. It was such a joy to visit with Bishop Sample, who I had not seen in over 30 years. We are members of the 1978 graduating class of Bishop Gorman High School in Las Vegas, Nevada. Enclosed in this blog entry are photos of us at the conference. In one of them is Bishop Sample's mother, Mrs. Joyce Dory Sample. The photos were taken by Joshua Mercer, the gentleman who directed the conference, and performed exceptionally in that capacity. (For more information on the conference as well as the Marian Center, which is run by Josh and his lovely wife, Lori, see the website mariancenter.org.)
