Seems that I know a lot of people who have lost their dads very recently. The B family's father/grandfather died rather suddenly two weeks ago...The M family's dad/grandpa was diagnosed with stomach cancer the first week of January and died the last Sunday of February, surrounded by his family as they prayed a Rosary (his son the priest later said it was "the perfect death")...and just yesterday, the S. family lost their dad/grandpa -- he had been doing work for a local charity last week and suffered a bad fall that resulted in a massive brain injury. With his condition deteriorating, the family elected to remove him from life support. May God be with all these men and have mercy on their souls.

Meanwhile, my good friend and sponsor, the godmother to all my kids, tells me that her dad's battle with cancer is not going well. A second round of chemo did not deter the tumor's growth, and his last shot for treatment is a particular procedure that few oncologists do. One is in Omaha, very close to his home, so he is hoping to be taken on by that physician before it's too late.

Please pray for these good men and for the many other dads that you know who could use some spiritual support today.
