  1. I was a good friend who lives in Oskaloosa Iowa usa. We were on a sabbatical together at Sangre New Mexico in l991, I came to visit him twice and He came to visit me once in Iowa.

    The spirit of Liam got my attention. I think that he wanted me to know that he is now at peace. I will continue to offer my Mass prayers for Liam.
    Peace,,,, Fr. Tom Spiegel
