  • Conor MacNessa - Addendum

    04/22/2024 4:35:26 PM PDT · by AbnSarge · 16 replies
    As you know, Conor MacNessa (Tom (Doc) Mitchell) passed away in January and was finally laid to his final rest in Arlington National Cemetery April 10. Yesterday I was informed that his youngest son John died in his sleep the night before last. He was only in his 20's. Obviously the family is devastated. Please keep Mary Frances and the rest of the family in your prayers. Eternal rest grant to them O Lord, And let perpetual light shine upon them. May they rest in peace, Amen.

    Conor MacNessa (Tom Mitchell) will be laid to his final rest at Arlington National Cemetery April 10. Unfortunately it takes that long to be scheduled with full appropriate honors. I will be there, and invite any Freepers in the DC/VA/MD area who may have known and respected Tom to participate. PM me for more details. God love Tom, God Bless and comfort his family, and God Bless you all. 'Til Valhallah, Brother

    Dear FRiends, Arrangements have been made with Whitehurst, Sullivan. Burns and Blair to lay my beloved wife Sheila to rest at 1:30, Wednesday, December 2 at Fresno Memorial Gardens. It will be a small graveside service with friends and family. We selected a site that is very near where my mother and father and sister Thelma are buried. It's a small plot, but there is room there for me, too, someday. This is by far the hardest and most heartbreaking thing I've ever done. Sheila was the light of my life. She loved God, loved life, and she loved nature...

    Jim and his family need our prayers tonight. Sheila has not been doing very well and has been bed-ridden for about 3 weeks. The visiting nurse just left after informing Jim that Sheila will probably pass tonight. Sheila's organs are shutting down, her blood pressure has dropped and her breathing is very labored.
