The son of American Catholic’s Donald McClarey passed away overnight. Please keep him in your prayers.
My beloved son, Lawrence Charles McClarey, passed away of a seizure last night. I found him this morning at 6:15 AM when I attempted to rouse him for the “Daddy Readings” that he and I had done daily since he was a small boy. Larry had autism, an infectious smile, and was a continual joy to all who knew him. Once he attained puberty he began having seizures, not uncommon in autism, and I gave him seizure medication daily. He lived for 21 years on this earth and he was the light of this world for myself and his mother, my bride.
Eternal rest grant unto him, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon him. May the souls of the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace. Amen.
God be with his family on this tragic day, and through the mercy and grace of God, on this birthday of the Church, may he be born into heaven.
