He's quite lucid and retains his sense of humor, but now he tires very easily. It is amazing to see: he knows exactly what is happening and is prepared for anything. What a blessing and example he continues to be to we who are his sons and daughters in Christ!
Well, today he turned 91 years old, God Bless him! About a dozen of us came to visit. He wanted an ice cream cake, and that is what Katie brought him (green, for St. Patrick's Day). He enjoyed it, too, and of course he enjoyed having us around as well. But what really made him happy (aside from Fr. Nick bringing Holy Communion, of course) was when Janet and John brought his dog Zack! Fr. Malloy loves animals, all animals, and he had really missed Zack. It's hard to tell which of the two is happier!
Happy Birthday, Fr. John!
