    I just learned that my sister's husband passed away in the night. I am asking for prayers for his soul and prayers for my sister and family--especislly my sister. She found him this morning "asleep" in his recliner and realized he had died. She has had a rough year with several bad health issues. We will not be able to fly out to her because of covid they are keeping the whole thing just the children. Understandable but very hard for me to not be there with her.
    His name was Rob. The EMTs said they could tell it was a peaceful death. (He was a devout Catholic)
    Thank you all so much.
    Very comforted it is the feast of St Therese. Their oldest child is named for St Therese.

    I am so sorry, my condolences to you and your family AED. Your poor sister, how terribly heartbreaking . :cry:
    Rob, and your family will be in my prayers. How remarkable that he passed on St.Therese's feast day. God is taking good care of his soul.

    What a beautiful death and Lovely name. Rob. Offering up mass tonight for himself and the wheel family. Such a lovely Feast Day to die on. I wonder if he had a Devotion to St Therese? Hopefully he will be meeting her soon up there.

    Thank you Padraig. They did have devotion to St Therese. Their first child is named for her. Also he had the great blessing of meeting Fr Solanys Casey when he was a child.
