    Beautiful prayer.  Joining mine for you, Simple Man, your Son and your Father.
    It was lovely reading about how you took care of him these last months.

    Thanks so much.  I have been spending the evening in quiet reflection, and one thing I do have to chuckle about, is that the way I had to lift him onto, and off of, the portable toilet, several times a day, the past few months --- an idea he resisted until I persuaded him it was far safer than attempting all that in a regular bathroom --- one of the last gifts he has given me, are some fairly firm biceps.  Let's just say I've gotten a little on the sedentary side in recent years, though as Southern men go, there are far worse cases.  We tend to love our hearty cooking and our air conditioning.

    He'd probably want me to continue lifting.  He was always after me, to get more exercise, and to lose some weight.  No argument there.

    I pray we will all be together once again one day.  Forsan et haec olim meminisse juvabit.

  • Dear SimpleMan and Family,

    I am very sorry to hear about the great loss of your dear father.  I added you and your family to my prayer list when I saw you mentioned that you were taking care of him---at home.  I can understand some of the difficulties of that when I had helped with elderly family.  I am sure you have had countless opportunities day and night (you mentioned sleepless nights) to offer up and earns graces for him and yourself.  You have given us all a good example on taking care of one's own.

    May your beloved father, Frank, rest in peace and may the Lord have mercy on his soul!

    Prayer For Father
    O God, You who have commanded us to honor our father and mother, in Your goodness have mercy on the soul of my father, and forgive him his sins, and bring me to see him in the joy of eternal happiness. Through Christ our Lord. Amen

    An indulgence of 3 years. A plenary indulgence under the usual conditions, if devoutly recited every day for a month.

    :pray:  :pray:  :pray:
    Surge, Domine, et dissipentur inimici, et eos qui oderunt te, a facie tua!
