I had the privilege of serving on the APC with the Cardinal. He was always so gracious and very interested in all of us on the committee. He let it slip that Birch Beer was his favorite soda, so when we had our final meeting and social I made sure Birch Beer was there for him. During his time at Little Sisters, he enjoyed music so much, especially the old Irish songs, where he would join in on the singing. Such a really nice man besides being a wonderful leader of our Archdiocese.
