A few days ago, a friend of mine, a pediatrician, had to evacuate from his home in Tampa with his wife and two sons.  The family used to be parishioners in our Church before they moved to Florida last year.  Unfortunately, they got into an accident that lead to the death of his wife.  His younger son had a neck injury and is on a neck brace.  His older son has minor injuries.  He is on crutches.  Both of his sons are pre-teen boys.  The accident happened around 3am September 9.  We were told by our parish priest that the two boys decided to go to Church the following day, even dressed in their tunics, and partook of the Eucharist.

The body of Mary is embalmed and ready to be sent to NJ any moment now for the funeral at our parish.  Please keep the family of Mary in your prayers.

May the blessed memory of Mary be eternal in the Lord.  May she rest in the heavenly Jerusalem in the bosom of the all-holy Theotokos.
