Mourning


Another friend from high school died this morning.  She had cancer.   She is survived by her husband and four children.

Our group of friends is being hit hard right now--one right after the other in this month of the dead.

Again, words fail.

May she rest eternally in the arms of Our Lord.

I don't know what to say except that I wish that I was in Maryland right now. "K's" passing hits me a bit harder cause I knew her and D well back then. I wish I was there to give support to "D" and the kids.
Never take life for granted, always be ready to meet God face to face. Never take those you love and care about for granted, you never know when your time (or theirs) will come.

Eternal rest grant unto to "K" O Lord and let perpetual light shine upon her. May she rest in peace. Amen

We were all shocked that it happened so fast after we found out she was ill. Days, I think.

I echo your prayer. May the souls of the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace.

I did not know November was the "Month of the Dead." It has surely been a long and hard month. My mother always said, "It comes in threes." This is the third hit for me ... so I'm praying it's over.

Prayers for K and her family.

Yes, the entire month is dedicated to remembering and praying for the faithful departed. As you know, my dad died in November as well.

"Slavery ended in medieval Europe only because the church extended its sacraments to all slaves and then managed to impose a ban on the enslavement of Christians (and of Jews). Within the context of medieval Europe, that prohibition was effectively a rule of universal abolition. "— Rodney Stark
