We celebrated the lives of Rev. William J. Bichsel, SJ (better known to all as Bix) and Daniel Gallagher of Hot Springs, NC, at the Ancestors Ceremony on July 28. Both were dear friends who love and spirit enriched the lives of all who knew them.

We were invited to participate in the Memorial Service for Muhammad Ali on June 10, 2016 in Louisville, KY.
Muhammad Ali wanted a multi-faith service for his memorial; his lawyer and friend who was on the committee for the service knew another lawyer who is a friend of our order; and of all of Nipponzan Myohoji members, we were geographically the closest.
Life can surprise you.What an honor and special day it was.
