A Letter from Ethel and John PohlenFriends

Dear Sarge,

We just had to have a Mass said for one of our favorite partners. We've known Eunice and you since that first International Games we participated in at Notre Dame. As you know we met all the Citation Jets with the Special Olympics Athletes--Ethel would bake two-three thousand cookies and I provided all that pop.

We followed this at University of Minnesota, Yale, University of North Carolina and our last was at Iowa State. They were some of our most important experiences. We always met Eunice and you for short get-togethers.

We lived next to Robert and Ethel in McLean for many years. Always exciting at their house at Halloween. Ethel, my Ethel and I went to Mass together the day their last baby was born. We helped her since Robert was already gone.

Well, Sarge, we will always remember our wonderful experiences with Eunice. We know we'll meet her again in heaven.

God Bless you and your entire family.

Ethel and John Pohlen
