Condolences and a remembrance
January 25, 2013 | 01:27 AM

I had the pleasure to visit with John over the phone about 13 years ago. I had read his first 3 Catholic books and saw that he had written a fourth about going back to our neighborhood in St. Christina's Parish. I mentioned first that he was in class with my sister at St. C's and he remembered her but said she was one of the smart kids so she didn't hang around with his crowd. Then I asked him to autograph a book for a friend in Fort Worth who was from Chicago's North Side. He said that he would come up with something. As I remember it went like this, " Like all smart North Siders, you have Southsiders for friends." What a great guy!
