In 1999, I attended the Diaconal ordination of Father Mickey in Rome, conferred by Cardinal Ratzinger, later Pope Benedict XVI. A day earlier, while crossing Saint Peter's Square, I heard a familiar voice. It was Bill McGrath pontificating as usual amidst his family. It was interesting to find him in the midst of thousands of people. Bill and Mary Kay and I had many good times at St. Michael's in Newark. They attended my 25th anniversary dinner in 2003. God's peace to Bill and the family. Thanks for a life well lived. Father John Gagnier
