Twin Friars Die On Same Day After Inseparable Life

There is a bizarre and touching story out of Buffalo where twin brothers Julian and Adrian Riester, 92, two Franciscan monks died on the same day after spending a virtually inseparable life together. They joined the order in their 20s and last week Brother Julian Riester and Brother Adrian Riester died together at St. Anthony Hospital in St. Petersburg, Florida.

The two priests were often seen strolling together or biking together. Julian died Wednesday morning and Adrian then followed him that evening. You might enjoy reading of their extraordinary bond below.

By the way, these twins even sneeze together (I admit this is all a transparent way to getting to show a cute video of two twins sneezing at same time):

  1. Sorry? What was that? All I caught was the words “anger” and “Nebraska”. If you’re so angry, maybe should try shouting less or perhaps moving away from Nebraska. Shouting only raises your blood pressure and causes the release of adrenalin and when you’re so excitable, that can’t be helping. Also, you should work on that dialect . . . Midwestern accented Shouting Imbecile is still just as much gibberish as Standard Shouting Imbecile. Your cooperation on these matters is greatly appreciated. Might I also suggest that there are plenty of good decaffeinated brands on the market that taste as good as the real thing.


  3. Sure, try to weasel your way out of it now, girl beater.

    And as to you, shouter? I don’t speak fluent Shouting Imbecile so you’ll have to come back when you learn a more cogent and quieter dialect.

  4. By the way, an 11 year old boy is probably less physical than a 13 year old girl. Chances are the 11 year old boy would get his ass kicked. But then you have never had children so I understand your limited understanding of this.

    If the boy were 15 or 16 I would not advocate that line. But since you have never had children it isn’t fair for me to expect you to understand.

  5. I thought that was what I was already doing, oh advocate of beating up little girls.

  6. no sour grapes at all, just speaking the truth.

    Now run along and go play with your pussy.

  7. Awwwwww. How are those sour grapes tastin’ this morning, Greed-o?

  8. Former Federal Leo:

    then maybe you need to go look at Buddha is Laughing’s posts where he denigrates me and others.

    When you chastise him for his many denigrating posts, I will take what you have to say seriously. Until then, your bucket doesn’t hold water.

  9. “Roco 1, June 10, 2011 at 1:07 pm

    plesae, your house is the far better place to look. Oh thats right you dont have a house or a family which lives in it. Just your cats in a small one bedroom apartment, enjoy.”


    Buddha does not need my intervention regarding your words as quoted above; however, such words are unfair and unwelcomed here. Some of your points are worthwhile and generate discussion; nevertheless, please leave if you cannot regulate your boorish behavior.

  10. Hey Buddha, you got yourself a live one. Maybe Roco is related to Sen./ Dr. Bill Frist who could diagnose a person by watching them on TV. Roco can do it from a few keystrokes. Sort of like “Name That Tune.” Ah, those conservatives have wonderous powers to behold. Now if they can just go to sleep without the night light, real progress will be made.

  11. Eccles:

    “ad dextra et ad sinistra. Seems the Romans thought the left was worse than fools.”


    They also examined the entrails of chickens to divine the future. Yep, right in keeping with the reasoning powers of most fundamentalists even today. The Romans did have the excuse of living in the 100 BCE but who am I to expect any sort of emotional or intellectual evolution from the current crop of folks who, in the words of one of my heroes, “watch the Flintstones as if it were a documentary.”

  12. Really. That’s not what you said earlier, greedy kicking skanky ass boy. And there you go with the assumptions again. Not everyone who is childless necessarily wants children. Would some kids be nice? Possibly, but it’s simply not an imperative with me. If that presents a problem for you, that would be your problem.

  13. my son has never even touched a girl in anger. that is not how he was raised. Sorry to disapoint cat man.

    And I also taught him to not take sexual liberties with women for whom you do not care.

    All those bedrooms, empty and barren. No patter of little human feet or the laughter of their mother when they do something funny.

  14. Shows what happens when you assume. I live in a spacious three bedroom house with my cats. And I know you don’t beat up little girls. You’re not tough enough for the task so you teach your boy to do it for you. I really feel sorry for your children. Surrounded by acres of land and not a real male role model in sight.

    Care to try again?

    I’ll be glad to keep making you look like the venal sociopathic fool you are.

  15. plesae, your house is the far better place to look. Oh thats right you dont have a house or a family which lives in it. Just your cats in a small one bedroom apartment, enjoy.

    I am looking out my window at 5 acres of wooded bliss in the heart of one of the wealthiest communities in the country. Nicely maintained lawn and my son and I are on our way to have some fun since the sun is shining. I do so love irony, you call me a sociopath but your life is a prime example.

    Maybe you could sneak the cats in your tackle box or golf bag? That way you can stroke your ego wherever you are.

    I dont beat up little girls, quit projecting.

  16. Well , , , to start with, in any search for a village idiot but especially retrograde village idiots, the most logical place to start is at your house.

    I said 10th and I meant 10th because that’s the kind of retrograde thinking that leads people to burn witches – a still common practice in the 10th Century.

    Don’t you have some little girls to beat up somewhere, troll?

  17. 10th century Romans? Dont you mean the 1st century? I think we know where the 10th century idiot is.
