A Tribute to Richard Bingold
The CNY Marian Center has lost three dear friends recently - Nora Whaley, Peg Sopchak and now our dear friend, Richard Bingold. Richard passed away June 24, the 38th Anniversary of the first apparition in Medjugorje. On that day in 1981, Our Lady appeared on Mt. Podbrdo holding the baby Jesus in her arms. She didn't speak to the children but they were so frightened several ran away and none approached her. What a blessed day for Richard to leave his earthly life. He devoted his life to Our Lady and Medjugorje and made the beautiful Pilgrim Rosary with stones from Apparition Hill. Condolences can be sent to RIchard's wife, Monique, and children at: PO Box 644, Alburgh VT 05440. The pictures in the slideshow below were taken at the CNY Marian Center during one of Richard's many visits with his Pilgrim Rosary. We will add some more pictures and videos from Medjugorje experiences with Richard.
