Daily Update

The National Catholic Register has a moving tribute to a gentleman who spoke at our annual CPPAC just 3 years ago and left an impression with us that will always be a standard to emulate.  J. J. Hanson, taught us that every moment we are here on earth is special, no matter what we face. His zest for life and his ability to share with strangers how important life is, is a lesson we will never forget.  We thank Kathleen Gallagher, a favorite every year at CPPAC, for introducing us to J. J. Hanson, and share her and his family’s loss, as J. J. Hanson is at peace watching over his loving family.  Thank you, Kristen, and Kathleen for sharing J. J., a remarkable loving husband and father.  Rest in Peace, J. J. Hanson, you fulfilled your job here with the courage of your convictions and love of living every moment you were given.  The world would be a better place if more people were like J. J. Hanson.
