REST IN PEACE DONALD WATLINGTON
As we are going to print, I just heard from parishioner, Wendy Bolas that her father passed away last night. Don Jr. and Wendy were by Donald's bedside at Chestnut Hill Hospital. Don had a challenging year of debilitating illness. We are making funeral and memorial plans this weekend and can announce something on Sunday. Please remember him and his dear family as they mourn and celebrate a life well-lived.
O God of grace and glory, we remember before you this day
our brother Donald. We thank you for giving him to us, his
family and friends, to know and to love as a companion on
our earthly pilgrimage. In your boundless compassion,
console us who mourn. Give us faith to see in death the gate
of eternal life, so that in quiet confidence we may continue
our course on earth, until, by your call, we are reunited with
those who have gone before; through Jesus Christ our Lord.
