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.
