Oscar, the leifmotif for the Wichita event is to pay tribute and thank those who made our adjustment a bit easier, like Father Kocour ( whom i did not know personally but know of his contribution.). Hope you can join us. Thanks.

oscar, my friend lillianna and i would walk by THE MARIANNA home on sat. and invite all the cuban boys to walk to riverside park with us. we were only 15, but it was such an innocent time, and all of you were very much respectful and protective of us. we never had to worry, and felt safe around you.(although lily did comment on some remarks she heard the boys speak in spanish that she could not repeat to me! ha!)it was a lot of fun. later in life i married jerry kerschen who helped father kocour at the home. fathet k. was then my uncle by marraige and i got to know him very well. he had VERY fond memories of the marianna home. he died a few years ago at the priest retirement home. they found him kneeling by his bed in prayer when he passed. i know you ALL have a friend in heaven as you were all kept in his prayers while he was living and i am sure you are still in his prayers now. he considered you all HIS boys. becky(rebecca) hanna-kerschen
