“When it comes to that six-fee distancing, that’s the hardest thing for me. And it might be the hardest thing for you because I want Loyola Rambler hugs,” said Sister Jean. “They mean so much to each other. It’s going to be hard for us. To the students, remember, there are to be no parties. You know the kind of parties I mean. So don’t have them. Please don’t disappoint me.”
She’s having a virtual party at 11:00 a.m. on Friday. It’s BYOC – bring your own cake. Sister Jean was asked if she prefers cake, cookies or brownies. She said cake with ice cream.READ MORE: Postal Worker Tells CBS 2 Staffing Issues Due To Federal Leave, Prioritization Of Package Delivery Are In Part To Blame For Persistent Mail Problems
