....of a long time friend. I just found out he passed away last night of a sudden stroke. We go back a LONG, long way....since 6th grade. We then went to High School together, worked part-time together....and for 3 years lived across the street from one another. And his parents (who are still alive) and mine were very good friends. And I was looking forward to seeing him tomorrow evening at a mini-reunion~
I am also troubled because he "strayed" away from the Catholic Faith for awhile and don't really know if he came back.
Sorry this is long....and I've been in this room a lot lately....but my friend "A" could use the prayers.
I'm sorry for your loss, Jerry...The "hits" just keep coming, huh?
May God receive "A's" spirit in Heaven, and grant him eternal rest. Prayers of consolation for your friend's family, as well as for yourself. Celebrate him at the mini-reunion!
