Not long after I wrote about my friend, Rosie, back in April, and how she had sent Henry chiles and had sent me some veils, I received another envelope from her. I opened it and out fell this chain with a religious medal. On one side is the image of Pope Paul VI. When I turned it over, I saw the image of Our Lady of Perpetual Help. Rosie had written a note explaining why she was sending it to me. She said it had been given to her by her brother-in-law, who went to Rome when he was in the Marines. The papacy of Pope Paul VI lasted from 1963-78. Most likely the brother-in-law had served in the Marines during the Vietnam War.  . . .
