His body was giving out on him, but his mind was still sharp as a tack. We always played cards with him when I visited him.

Used to be pinochle, then it turned to canasta.

I just sent that to my brothers and sister for the funeral handout. Never know!

Beautiful words, and they fit my father.

Prayers for your family — my goodness a century meant God had a lot for him!

I know you know that God and Jesus soothe the souls of the just.

Please know I am praying for you.

I will never forget the words of the parish priest at my grandfather’s funeral: “save your prayers for the living, he (grandpa) is with the Lord already.”

Well I will ask his intercession for my daughter and her husband who are starting a milking operation in rural Otsego County NY. The Chobani yogurt success has created a market for milk in upstate NY - who would have thought. They got married last June and Molly is expecting on June 6th. So I am asking prayers for this young couple as well.

Thought you might enjoy the remarkable story behind the success of Chobani Yogurt. Many prayers for your daughter, son-in-law and their child.

Crossing The Bar

Sunset and evening star. And one clear call for me! And may there be no moaning of the bar when I put out to sea. But such a tide as moving seems asleep too full for sound and foam. When that which drew from out the boundless deep turns again home.

Twilight and evening bell, and after that the dark! And may there be no sadness of farewell when I embark;

For though from out our borne of time and place the flood may bear me far, I hope to see my Pilot face to face when I have crossed the bar.

Gabriel Fauré - Requiem : 'In Paradisum'

In paradisum deducant te Angeli; in tuo adventu suscipiant te martyres, et perducant te in civitatem sanctam Ierusalem. Chorus angelorum te suscipiat, et cum Lazaro quondam paupere æternam habeas requiem.

May angels lead you into paradise; upon your arrival, may the martyrs receive you and lead you to the holy city of Jerusalem. May the ranks of angels receive you, and with Lazarus, once a poor man, may you have eternal rest.

A long and full life. What a blessing!

But the loss of one’s father (and patriarch, no doubt) is a hole that just doesn’t quite ever fill.

My sincere condolences and prayers.

Peace to you, and comfort to your whole house.

So sorry, Salvation.   Praying for you, your Dad, and your whole family and loved ones.

Blessed Pope John Paul II died on the Vigil of Divine Mercy Sunday (a different day that year), as discussed at this link:

   Divine Mercy and Pope John Paul II

Asking for his prayers also, and may Our Blessed Mother console you (and remember that all our "Hail Mary's" we ever say ask Mary to pray for us and our loved ones at the hour of our deaths.)

I just sent that to my brothers and sister for the funeral handout. Never know!

If you want, I can send you the entire prayer which includes remembrances for priests, martyrs, apostles, etc. This prayer is chanted at the conclusion of the funeral mass while the priest incenses the coffin. It is traditional in the Maronite Church to celebrate a mass 40 days after the funeral, at which time the Myrrh & Incense prayer is again chanted at the conclusion of the mass and once again on the 1st anniversary. Let me know.

Gonna post the full story sometime this evening. Very tired right now, but will post my story before the night is over. Might be a little surprising. Might be boring. But feel as though an explanation is in order to clear up any confusion.
Thank you for asking.

Done deal... For your whole family. No doubt y'all have been expecting it, but that certainly doesn't make it any easier. It is a terrible loss.

I don’t even knoe if the caridologist will release me to go to the funeral with the high atrial fib that I am dealing with.

Well there's another thing to pray for! I will pray that all that clears up, not just for the occasion, but permanently!

I am truly sorry for you. What a sad time... But while 'sorry don't pay the bills', I hope you know that you are not alone, and that folks are holding you up before the Father - May God rain peace and comfort on you all.
