I.w, Soctio. -- Peg, e  THE OBSERVER  % Sunday, February 13, 1944 ,,,4 St. Vincent's Jottings ., letter from one of our boys: "Enclosed you will find some ttudio stills that I thought the younger children would enjoy. If you like the pictures, let me know, and I will from time to time send you some. I will never forget that St. Vincent's was my first home and I was named after that Saint." Vincent Forst, at one time a child of St. Vincent's, is now employed in the publicity department of the Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Pictures. All at St. Vincent's unite in thank- tng Mr. Forst for the pictures he sent." The little ones will enjoy the scenes of Sabu and the animals. Our prayers are offered daily for all our alumni and for our bene- tactors. Two big smiles left St. Vincent's East Dubuque i i EGELHOF FUNERAL HOME Tel. 26 B.

Many times his smile disarmed correction. After h'e left, Sister was looking over the assignments turned in by Frank- lin's class. At the top of Franldin's paper was written "J. M. J." and at the bottom were the words "God bless you, Sister." The teacher was explaining to the little ones that God had no be- ginning and no end. To help them understand, she told them that long before our grandfathers lived, God existed--even before the fath- er of their grandfather was born, God was here. One youngster put up his hand and asked: 'Sister, was God here before you were born?" St. Joseph's Home said farewell on Monday to a gentle and kindly soul. God in His wisdom and mercy had called Mary Donahue to her eternal rest.
