It saddened me to hear of the passing of my dear friend MJ. My best friend in college and beyond. My prayers are with her and her family.

A most wonderful singing nun, rest in peace. I can still recall the Algebra equations she put into song with her guitar. Our final exam included a mimeograph of Bob's autograph and message to our class, still have it.

Sr. Newhart was a fabulous teacher! I thoroughly enjoyed her classes and have thought of her fondly through the years. Her positive attitude and sense of humor were always encouraging. My sympathy to her friends and family.

I am very sorry for your loss. Please take comfort in drawing close to God through prayer who provides us with "the peace of God that surpasses all understanding" and with comfort during difficult times.
