Sleep in Heavenly Peace. Love you, Dad.
I was so very sad to hear of Dear Jake's passing. He sang behind me in the resurrection choir and when i was an alto. His voice was just so comforting to blend with. Such a lovely, gentle and talented person that I had the pleasure of knowing for over 20 years.
Dear Dorothy and Family, I am so sorry about Jacob dying. I remember him so well as well as you and Robert. Many prayers, Sr. Helen Essa, O.P.
