2. One of the coolest moments of my life was getting to see Pope Francis in person

Granted, it was rather far away -- he was praying the Angelus. But a great memory. He seemed to really enjoy the crowds who came to see him. That in itself was fun as well: people from all over the world with banners, yelling hello in their own languages. He did his best to acknowledge everybody. Cool times.

3. Wonderful. I envy you, as I'll likely never get the opportunity.

Meanwhile, I'll enjoy pics and videos, etc. of our dear Frankie!
