  4. I was pastor of Prince of Peace Catholic Church from 2002-2088. I had many meals at the Schulte’s. Kay was a great cook. My prayers for John and the family. I am presently in the Army as a Catholic Chaplain. I’m stationed at Fort Myer, VA. I will remember Kay at Noon Mass today. In an hour I have a funeral at Arlington National Cemetery. I think of the words of Jesus: “I am the Resurrection and the Life”. I pray a blessed eternity with the Lord for Kay. Fr. Fred
