The Reunion

Emily's uncle Stanley, who used to work for NASA, flew in from Houston for the wedding. When he found out I taught at Ateneo, he asked if I could arrange a meeting with physicist Fr Dan McNamara, his classmate at Ateneo de Manila way back when. We went to visit on Monday, and narrowly caught the busy Fr Dan. It turns out there was one more surprise: Uncle Stan was also friends with Fr Francisco Glover (author of a widely used physics textbook). "Slim!" Fr Glover called out when he saw Uncle Stan. The three had not seen each other since 1968.
