    My Dear Patti (my sister) and all the family and loved ones.  I praise God for the gift, the great gift of the life of William Fairman.  A holy witness to life given, spent and lived as a true Christian, given up to God\'s will, God\'s work, with all the gifts he had to share.  I am offering my Holy Communion every day in Mass between now and Divine Mercy Sunday.  Please know that our little community of Sisters is with you, prayerfully these days, as you grieve the loss, I pray with all my heart, that on Saturday our Lady\'s day-that you may truly feel the comfort of her motherly presence at the funeral Mass and that you mass leave him in the arms of the Merciful Lord.  In Jesus Love  Mother Mary Catherine mw  (Peggy)

    Sincere condolences to the family and friends for your loss. What has helped me to deal with losing those close to me is what God has promised for the future. Revelation 21:4 says God will SOON eliminate death and suffering. Also He has promised  to resurrect ALL who have died! (John 5:28,29)  These are not mere words, but promises from Our Heavenly Father. They are sure to come true. I hope these thoughts can bring you some comfort during this extremely difficult time.
