    Sister Irene, then Sister Louis Anthony, was my second grade teacher at St. Agnes in Louisville KY. I moved in the middle of that grade level to Kansas. Sister wrote to me for many years. I didn’t see her again until I was a mother of three children and visited her in Nazareth. She was a warm, kind, supportive constant in my life. I am forever grateful. In addition, she taught me about diphthongs, the musical scales, grace, temptation and prepared me for First Communion. I loved her.
