  • A sliver of history passes . . . .

    The widow of one of Waterloo's five Sullivan brothers killed during World War II has died.

    Katherine McFarland, 93, the widow of Albert Sullivan, youngest of the five brothers and the only one who married, died New Year's Day at the Western Home Communities in Cedar Falls, where she had been staying the past several months, said her granddaughter, Kelly Sullivan, a Cedar Falls elementary school teacher.

    Her tale served to remind me that, in these troubled times, the blessings of peace remain so elusive, yet so vitally necessary.
