All these things were .sparkling
in the personality, and are still
alive in our memory of Rohert Lee
Green Connelly, one of the best
friend.s St. Alary s has ever had.
We all loved him; even those of
us who didn’t know him well had
a special feeling for him. And he
returned this love. He may not
have known all our names, but he
knew all our faces. He always did
anything for anyone who needed
• him, whether he knew her or not.
His love for us showed through
even in the classroom, where he
often gave us fatherly advice
about our lives, present and fu
ture. And it was always advice we
could use, sometimes applyiufr i,i
ways we hadn’t even thought
about. Remember the lady of the
house presiding over the dinner
table? And remember how he read
those poems? He made them come
alive for us; they meant some
thing special when he read them.
He really was crazy in a won-
derfid way. And his friendliness
was one of the most outstanding
things about him. He waved at us,
on three occasions in one week
through the window right in the
middle of class!
We all grew to admire this won-
