Dorothy: We go back a few years--68 to be exact--"Go you Pioneers..." When Tilley called me today to tell me about Bill's passing, I wanted to send a note to comfort you and your family. I thank you for standing by him through all the days of his discomfort and final days. You need to be reminded, my dear, dear friend, that the loss of a Loved One leaves such a painful hole in our lives, and we often forget that a joyful Space has been filled in Paradise...May He who is the God of Comfort bring you and your family, healing and strength. I will offer my Mass on Friday the 23rd for his intention. May he rest in peace! Respectfully, and may God Bless you; and may the family find consolation in knowing that God never forgets his faithful children! Father Frank
