O Divine Master, grant that I may seek not so much to be consoled as to console; to be understood as to understand; to be loved as to love; for it is giving that we receive; it is in pardoning that we are pardoned, and it is in dying that we are born to Eternal Life, Amen. Dad, well miss you; you taught us well; well keep the faith God bless you. Thomson Funeral Chapels 783-7211
