I have given the name of "Syl Feeley Abundant Life Garden" to this 30 ft by 20 ft plot that I will have seeded with spinach and lettuce tonight. Fr. Sylvester Feeley C.SS.R. was a wonderful Redemptorist confrere who greeted me as Superior of the Caribbean Missions in Puerto Rico, Dominican Republic and the US Virgin Islands when I arrived there in January of 1967. Syl was called Padre Roberto by people in PR and the Caribbean. He was a great man. Now, besides "honoring" him with my garden's name....I expect some of his "help from up, out or over there in Eternity.....Pray for the garden, Syl.
Here are Skip Doyle, our Redemptorist friend and the fencing we have just completed.
One of the most hopeful signs of spring these days are our Bald Eagles who have finally overcome the threats to their existence and have returned.....But I would never disturb them.
