A Catholic who follows Rome & the Magisterium. I'm against gay "marriage", abortion, embryonic stem cell research, euthanasia, human cloning. Altar girls, Communion in the hand, Eucharistic Ministers and "Protestant" music in the Church doesn't bother me at all. A proud American retired submarine sailor. Our borders should be secured with a 10 ft. high fence topped by concertina wire with minefields out to 20 yards on both sides and an additional 10 yards filled with warning signs outside of that Let's get energy independent NOW! Back Israel to the max, stop appeasing followers of the Pedophile Prophet. Pro 2nd Amendment, pro death penalty, Repeal all hate crime legislation. Back the police unless you'd rather call a hippie when everything hits the fan. Get government out of dealing with education, childhood obesity and the enviornment. Stop using the military for sociological experiments and if we're in a war don't micromanage their every move. Kill your television, limit time on the computer and pick up a book. God's will be done and may He have mercy upon us all.

Everywhere I can find a tribute to my dear, sweet, adopted son, Niall, I must let people know what a wonderful person he was and how much he was loved.

Niall and I were neighbors for 8-1/2 years. He was only 12 when I moved in across the steet but from that day on, we had a very special bond.

Niall was a breath of joy. His smile always lit up his face. He joked and had fun. But most importantly, Niall cared about people. About everyone. He would help anyone he could.

My heart has a giant hole in it that will never heal until the day I see my beloved son in heaven (I humbly pray) where I am confident he resides.

I'm sure he is joking with God and all of the angels. And brought another point of light unto God, who loves us all so much.

Niall may be gone from this earth physically but he left a legacy and an example that will live on.

My sweet Niall. I miss you and love you so very much.
