  • Without marriage and family life, there would be no other vocations
    On any given day, you’ll find me and Dennis running the gauntlet of modern family life. If you live it, you know it — or at least your own version of it.

  • Why we’re sending Anna to a Catholic school
    When it came time for our daughter to begin school, my wife and I discussed our options at length. Living in an excellent school district, we had multiple options to consider as to where we should send Anna for her education.
  • Mourning the loss  of an unborn child
    Due to a poorly-crafted law, New York State only requires a burial permit and proper disposition for the remains of fetal deaths occurring at 20 weeks gestation or greater.
