My father in law, the beloved great grandfather of our 9 grand children, died a few hours ago. As a Catholic it pains me to ask for selfish prayers. But screw that, this is a guy I loved and respected more than you can imagine. He was a father to me in truth, not just a courtesy father borrowed from my wife.
Please help us send him home. He wasn't what you would call the most devout person on the planet, but he believed in God and right. He lived right.
I'll not see him in purgatory.
yeah. A lot of men grow up thinking church is for women.
But often their lives serve God, and they know and acknowledge him on a non verbal level...
Thanks very much for telling me. I will say this again. God bless him and hold him dear. You and your family have my prayers and I prayed for his sweet soul.
God bless and keep you, dear friend.
Notre Père qui es aux cieux,
Que ton Nom soit sanctifié, que ton règne vienne,
Que ta volonté soit faite sur la terre comme au ciel.
Donne-nous aujourd'hui notre pain de ce jour.
Pardonne-nous nos offenses, comme nous pardonnons aussi à ceux qui nous ont offensés.
Et ne nous soumets pas à la tentation, mais délivre-nous du mal.
Car cest à Toi quappartiennent le règne, la puissance et la gloire,
pour les siècles des siècles. Amen
Je vous salue, Marie, pleine de grâces,
le Seigneur est avec vous, vous êtes bénie entre toutes les femmes,
et Jésus le fruit de vos entrailles est béni.
Sainte Marie, Mère de Dieu, priez pour nous pauvres pécheurs,
maintenant, et à l'heure de notre mort. Ainsi-soit-il.
Garde la Foi, mes amis! Nous nous sommes les sauveurs de la République! Maintenant et Toujours!
(Keep the Faith, my friends! We are the saviors of the Republic! Now and Forever!)

No one would do it on their own, they are under the authority that tells them to do it. I remember it at the time.
I was thinking of you earlier knowing that awful gut feeling realizing they are gone. It’s still all so new. Sad time for you/your wife and family.
You have my prayers.
