Rest In Peace Bishop Raymond Boland

In January of 1993 I was fortunate to be chosen to do Bishop Raymond Bolands ' official portrait when he took over the Diocese of Kansas City/St. Joseph.   We talked briefly on the phone about where to do the portrait and he asked for my suggestions.   Contrary to tradition, which was to use the Cathedral, I wondered allowed if we might use Our Lady of Sorrows... I have always thought that was one of the prettiest churches in Kansas City... to my surprise he agreed and we met there the following week.   He was a very gracious and down-to-earth man who will be greatly missed.

Along The Indian Mound Trail

This shows the abundant springs along the Cliff Drive Scenic Byway in Northeast Kansas City.   All are located along the Indian Mound Trail which runs below Gladstone Boulevard from the East Entrance to Cliff Drive all the way to White Avenue.     Take a break from Winter :)
