This past week, another of his sisters passed away, leaving behind her husband and 9 of her own 10 children -- and 42 grand- and great-grandchildren (including two of the most angelic voices ever to grace a sanctuary!)
She also leaves behind my dad, and his youngest sister.
I don't even want to think about it.
Eternal rest grant unto her, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon her. And may the souls of the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace. Amen.
