A beautiful experience

We would like to share a beautiful heartwarming experience that took place Aug. 24 at St. Mary’s Catholic Church in Tiskilwa.

The occasion — a 4 p.m. Mass in celebration of the 60th wedding anniversary of Joe and Louise Kunkel. Father Paul Meismer and Deacon John Murphy officiated at a very joyful, loving and spiritually moving Mass to a packed church consisting of family and friends. To those of us who have been longtime members of St. Mary’s, it was truly a flashback of the good old days at St. Mary’s. The air was truly electrified with warmth, love, laughter and many, many smiling faces.

This beautiful experience will certainly leave all present with a beautiful cherished memory. Thank you, Joe and Louise, for the wonderful opportunity to share in your wonderful celebration and thank you, Father Meismer and Deacon John Murphy, for your contribution to this very meaningful experience.
