Requiescat in Pace, Tim

I received news that at 3 P.M. Eastern Time today our brother, Tim graduated from this life to that life of Perfect Freedom. Although I did not know Tim, I feel as if a close family member has died.

Tim's wife is Fran who has been a frequent poster from our Fr. Jake's Place days. We've been praying for Tim for several months.

Let us pray:
    O God, whose mercies cannot be numbered: Accept our prayers on behalf of thy servant Tim, and grant him an entrance into the land of light and joy, in the fellowship of thy saints; through Jesus Christ thy Son our Lord, who liveth and reigneth with thee and the Holy Spirit, on God, now and for ever. Amen.
    Almighty God, Father of mercies and giver of comfort: Deal graciously, we pray thee, with Fran and her family, and all those who mourn, that casting every care on thee, they may know the consolation of thy love; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
Eternal Rest grant unto him, O Lord,
And light perpetual shine upon him.
May his soul, and the souls of all the departed
though the mercies of God, rest in peace

Blessed Tim, pray for us.
