Prayers, please for Michael Dages, my late husband's uncle. He was your typical old bachelore (age 81), and was a WWII Army vet, a plain, simple man who lived in the farm house he grew up in, who loved to talk ~ and argue his point ...he would have made a good debater or attorney (no offense to any of you lawyers out there!)
I chose and will deliver the readings tomorrow at his funeral service, conducted by a deacon. ALL of the priests of the Diocese of Evansville and the bishop are gone all week for a convocation.
NOTE: When I die, put me on ice til a priest is available. I want a funeral MASS, God willing!
