Homegoing of Fr. Harry’s Father

From Fr. Harry — At about 7:20 Eastern this morning my Dad slipped quietly away, crossing the Great Divide into the Promised Land, joining my Mom, and countless family, friends and the Heavenly Host. We are so thankful to the Lord that Dad is Free At Last!

We thank you, O God, for all the goodness and courage which have passed from the life of this your servant into the life of others and have left the world richer for his presence and we thank you for a life’s task faithfully and honorably discharged; for good humor and gracious affection and kindly generosity; for sadness met without surrender, and weakness endured without defeat; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen
