I’m sorry to hear it. Eternal rest grant him, Father, through Christ our Lord, amen.
Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with thee, blessed art thou amongst women, and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus. Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners, now and at the hour of our death. Amen.
We have indeed lost an admirable ally. I’m so sorry for his family; he reminds me of my father, and I couldn’t bare loosing him. That is, the Lord would have to absolutely carry me; perhaps that’s an indication I should rely more on my heavenly Father. But you know… good fathers are such an image of the only Father without qualification. Thank you, Lord God, for my dad.

Give to the departed eternal rest. Let light perpetual shine upon him.
Poor dude. Why is it though that conservatives always seem to look old for their age? If I read correctly, this guy is about a year older than I am, and he looked old enough to be my dad, or at least a much older uncle! Still, it puts mortality in perspective and makes me grateful for whatever time I do have…..
