In loving memory...

Francis Aloysius
June 5, 1920 - March 14, 2009

I just found out that my Grandpa died last night... Oh, I am going to miss him soooooo much! I would love to tell you all about him, but I just can't right now. It's all I can do to get on here and ask if you could please say a prayer for the repose of his soul, as well as one for my sweet grandmother, their 13 children, and countless* grandchildren and great-grandchildren. (*My Grandpa could always tell you exactly how many of us there are... All together he has over 100 descendants!)

I love you Grandpa!

Eternal rest grant unto him, O Lord. And let perpetual light shine upon him.
May his soul, and the souls of all the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace. Amen.

  27. What an inspiration! Here is a prayer for him and your beautiful blessed family!!
    Pater noster, qui es in caelis,
    sanctificetur Nomen tuum.
    Adveniat regnum tuum.
    Fiat voluntas tua,
    sicut in caelo et in terra.
    Panem nostrum quotidianum da nobis hodie,
    et dimitte nobis debita nostra
    sicut et nos dimittimus debitoribus nostris.
    Et ne nos inducas in tentationem,
    sed libera nos a malo.
