Uncle Buddy

My Uncle Buddy, 82, was found dead at home today by two loving nieces who had come to pick him up for a doctor's appointment. Uncle Bud was one of the two old coots in the family who refused to evacuate before or after Katrina. He was a menace on the roads, having once found himself on the far side of the lake without knowing how he got there. He went to daily Mass, but seems to have suffered profound scruples that kept him from ever receiving Communion. Now we pray that he enjoy profound Communion with the Lord he sought so confusedly.

Eternal rest grant unto him, O Lord, and let Your perpetual light shine upon him.

Keeping you and all of Uncle Buddy's family in my prayers.

Yes, prayers from me too for his eternal rest and consolation to all his loved ones.

We will miss you in Chicago on Saturday, but when the Bishop imposes his hands on me I will ask our loving Father to bless your uncle and your family in a special way...although Uncle Buddy is already enjoying the Lord in ways we can never imagine.
