Mary Bezy sits quietly in the pew before 5 o'clock Sunday Mass saying the rosary, her fingers lovingly touching the beads that have a very special meaning. The rosary is red, white and blue and says, "In God We Trust." Mary was one of five World War II Veterans to receive this special gift in November, 2011 at the St. Mary's School Veteran's Day Ceremonies. She served her country for five years as an Army nurse. A question about the rosary beads brings her to talk of years gone by and brings a smile to her face and a twinkle to her eye. It gives me, the listener, a feeling of gratitude. She has become the gift.
