After the Mass, we were allowed to walk around the school and the athletic center one last time. I took a number of pictures; looking at them on the computer today, I had this sense of melancholy.
I guess people are right when they say you can't go home again...I will miss Villa a great deal - I always wanted to teach there, or, failing that, send my (future) daughters there.
They were selling some VMA memorabilia at the breakfast following the Mass - I picked up a number of things to remind me of my Alma Mater even after it's gone.
Some people might think I'd feel deprived for attending a girls' school. I don't - some of my best memories were made at Villa Maria Academy. From Freshman Welcome, through Junior Ring Day, to the Baccalaureate Mass and Graduation, I have many good memories of my four years there.
Goodbye, Villa. I'll miss you.
