In March 2013, Columban Fr. Bobby Gilmore wrote this letter to his niece Sarah and her husband Rob when he found out that Annabel Grace was born with Cystic Fibrosis.
Dear Rob and Sarah,
Just got the news about Annabel Grace and I said, God, why Annabel Grace? And God said, “Leave that to Annabel Grace and Me.”
Then, I said, “God, why Rob and Sarah?”
And God said, “Why not Rob and Sarah and Me?”
And then I said, “God, why us Gilmores and Murphys?”
