Dear Dolores and Family,
May the Lord give your each that gift of peace!
There is so much to be said for the loving care that your Mother received from your generous and good heart!
I know that fr Louis will be greatly distressed not to be able to be with you, as you celebrate the wonderful life of your good Mother!
Please know of the prayerful accompaniment of the friars' prayer during this time of loss for all of you, and for the repose of her soul.
As I care for the friars, I will be unable to attend the Sunday and Mondy services for your Mother, but will keep you in prayer in these days!
With God's continued presence in your lives and God's closeness to each one of you, as you grieve your loss, I remain
Yours in Christ and St Francis,
Br Bob Brady, ofm
