my apologies

Sorry for the extended absence.  There was a death in the family. My Uncle Mike was dying in the nursing home, so I had to drive (300 miles) to Erie so I could see him one more time and to anoint him and give him the last rites.  After driving back to my parish, he passed away and following the weekend Masses, I drove back for his funeral.

He was the husband of my mother's sister (or you could say he was my mom's brother-in-law). His wife, my Aunt Rita is also my godmother. I liked my Uncle very much and was sad to see him ravaged by the Alzheimer's Disease which plagued him for the past several years.

If you get a chance, please say a prayer for his soul.  He was a good man and a devout Catholic who faithfully attended Mass.

And while you are praying, please keep my mother in there as well.  Her B12 shots are not working as had been hoped. She is still very fatigued and exhausted due to the decrease of oxygen in her blood. 

Thank you for your PATIENCE and KINDNESS

Just saw this today, Father.

Prayers for the repose of the soul of your Uncle Ernie. Prayers, too, for your dear Mother. By the way, she looked every inch the lady in the picture you posted of her and the late Archbishop Sambi! A lovely pink outfit too!!
