Winter. Dead. (Patch photo by Todd Richissin, who danced on the grave.)

Old man Winter is a state on mind and it may be on everyone's mind next Tuesday.

The paraphrase Mark Twain, reports of winter's demise are premature.

Hi Michele, Thanks for your comments. I appreciate your feelings and I'm so thankful for yourRead More thoughts on this piece. I'd love to address some of your concerns, but I'll limit this comment to the article. Someone wrote to me to ask me to post something about Sr. Joyce, who I met when I first started reporting in Hyattsville. You're right -- she was a very kind person. If you have other concerns, I encourage you to send me an email at sarahn@patch.com. I'd love to talk about this more. Take Care, Sarah Editor

Hi Matt, Yeah, in this case I felt it was necessary in order to provide background. This wasn'tRead More really intended to be an obituary -- more of an announcement on her passing and a bit of info on some of her recent work. I trust the comments left about her here -- and on the Facebook page dedicated to her memory -- cover all the really important stuff ;-) Sarah

No need to go to her defense, she references negative publicity and never provided anything goodRead More about what Sr. Joyce had done. She used poor judgement in providing information and says so with remarks like "I felt it necessary" and "I was aware of this and understand how sensitive an issue this is for many". Then goes on to say "she felt it best to identify it simply as a church matter as opposed to one person only". Really? What does she know about church matters? She obviously knew nothing of Fr. Stacks involvment in the decision. I can appreciate that your efforts were with good intention and it never occured to you that someone would make an insensitve remark about Sr. This article should have been about all that Sr. had done for thousand's of people and what a legend in her own time she was, but she didn't. That said, she owes this community and Sr. Joyce and her family an apology. She is the product of poor journalism and hasn't a thought of her own.
