Eternal Rest Grant Unto Her, O Lord, And Let Perpetual Light Shine Upon Her

My sister, Simone LeJeune, died yesterday. Please pray for the repose of her soul and for our family.

Funeral details will not be known until tomorrow, but it is looking like next Monday.
Eternal rest grant unto her, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon her.
She has been suffering from cancer for 5 years now. It was extremely aggresive and the cancer plus the treatments disabled her and caused her a great amount of pain. She is suffering no longer.

I especially ask prayers for my nephew, Matthew. He is 13 and has some special needs. Simone adopted him because she couldn't bare to see another minority child with special needs bounce from foster home to foster home. He doesn't understand what has happened and it will take him a good deal of time to realize that his mother isn't coming home from the hospital this time. He will be staying with my parents for the foreseeable future.

Thank you all for your prayers.

In addition, Gerry Hince (the Director of RCIA) lost her mother this week. Julia Agnes McGuire May, 89, passed away Sunday, and the funeral will be this Thursday, at St. Mary's at noon. You can read the obituary here.

Dear Marcel, my thoughts and prayers are with you at this sad time. I imagine it will be especially difficult this holiday season.

Our sure and certain hope of the resurrection is our consolation.

With love and prayer
