Editor, Manteca Bulletin,
On Oct. 5, I attended the funeral mass for 12-year-old Lizzy Antle. Her brother Edward is a senior at East Union and a member of the varsity football team. In support of their teammate the majority of the members were in attendance. They were all properly dressed and their reverence was beyond words.
It was heart-warming to see all these young gentlemen there sharing their support to their teammate and his family.
At one point in the mass, the congregation greets one another with a sign of peace. The entire team, one by one went to greet Edward. This was so impressive. There were a number of other East Union students in attendance as well. They too are to be commended as each one of them behaved like true ladies and gentlemen.
I am proud of all of you.
