One year ago today you left us.
On Eagles Wings makes me think of you and bawl like a baby.
You are missed. So, so missed.
I take out your Holy Card often and try to remember you are where you belong.
c. 1940. My grandpa (back row 3rd from left) with his siblings and parents. Fr. E is the little guy in the middle. 5 years later he went to the Seminary. They would never all be together again, until one year ago today.
“Do not let your hearts be troubled. Trust in God trust also in me. My Father’s house has plenty of room; if that were not so, would I have told you that I am going there to prepare a place for you? And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am. You know the way to the place where I am going.”
Thomas said to him, “Lord, we don’t know where you are going, so how can we know the way?”
Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. If you really know me, you will know my Father as well. From now on, you do know him and have seen him.”
