I have lived across the street from the church for about 5 years and even thou I am not a member or a Catholic ( my wife is) it has been a visable
presence for years. The parking lot alone has been a study in human nature and use.
I must admit to mixed feelings as I watch it destoryed over days.
1. My feeling is that if this wonderful looking church was in Europe it would have been kept up.
2. Maybe if Rt 31 was in better condition over the years the ground pounding overtime would not have been as bad to lossen the brick which from what I have seen was poor to begin with and poorly
3. The death of this church is not near as with grace as many a church function that has taken place in this place of life support it has maintained over the years.
4. No brick or plant is being held for those who
would like a rememberance and must violate conditions to collect a tear filled part of their
5. When I suggested to a worker that they should make available bricks for those who like a part of their past he remarked " if they cross the line they are responible and we are not liable."How sensitive is that? I don,t blame him, I blame
the insenitive system that allows it.
6. This church deserves a funeral that it would have allowed inside its doors. I am ashamed just watching such waste of human condition that we allow with such acceptance.
