There is her faith, an anchor point that holds her safe in an ever-changing world, and there is also her large family â her brother Ralph, 89, the surviving member of her seven siblings, speaks with her often and her many nieces and nephews, great nieces and nephews, and even now adult pupils whom she taught for many years in area Catholic School.
Sister Hope, who turns 102 on May 19, is still in charge of her life as a sign in her room at Mount Saint Ritaâs Health Centre professes.

It was a proving ground for the Woonsocket Police Departmentâs relatively inexperienced detective squad, more than half of whom had never investigated a homicide before.
âThey want to show you just what kind of a police officer theyâre capable of being,â says Police Chief Tom Carey. âThey know a murder is the biggest type of investigation theyâre ever going to be involved in.â
