May Frank Rest in Peace

As you may recall, on June 29 and again on July 6, I asked all visitors to this blog to pray for my brother-in-law who was in critical condition and on a respirator. Frank fought valiantly for nearly two weeks but passed away Friday afternoon, July 8. He will be missed. His funeral Mass and burial will be on Wednesday. He knew of your prayers, was strengthened by them, and was given the grace of seeing a priest. He died with his wife and other family at his side.

Please pray for the repose of Frank’s soul and for my sister.

Today, a friend sent me this. When he did so, he had no way of knowing that my sister was hoping that "Ave Maria" could be sung at her husband’s funeral Mass. 

Amazing how God works! We have to share the gift of this unique version with all who have prayed for Frank and who continue to pray for the repose of his soul and for the physical and spiritual well-being of my sister. May this song lift your spirit as it did ours!

You will never know this side of heaven, how much your prayers have meant. Thank you.
