Oh Jamie. I'm so, so sorry for your brother in law. And his wife. And his children. The sure and certain hope of the Resurrection is never as much consolation as I expect it to be. Not right away, anyway.

I may go crank up Rutter's requiem right now. Sigh.

Oh Jamie, I am so, so sorry for your BIL, your SIL, their girls, and the whole family. I will keep all of you in my prayers.

Know that you are not the only one who fights the urge to be a JmJ in church. Is it a form of spiritual attack? Or just my root sin of pride cropping up at horrible times? No matter - I will pray for you on this one, too, and for all of us who wrestle with this particular demon.

Oh, Jamie. So very sorry. May he rest in peace. May his wife and children always know the love and light of God, and be comforted by Him.

Praying for his repose, Jamie, and for your sister in law and the whole family.

You make me laugh...and then you punch me in the gut. I'm so sorry for your loss, and your family's.

Dear Jamie, I was praying for you BIL & SIL and your whole family all weekend long. This is so sad!!! How many days elapsed between the diagnosis & him dying? My heart goes out to his wife and daughters and family. I'll keep praying.

I will pray for you and your family. I'm sorry.

It doesn't seem appropriate to comment on this after hearing about your loss, but I just want you to know that you are not alone in struggling with judgemental thoughts during mass. I have the same struggle.

May his memory be eternal!

Dearest Jamie, I am so sorry. May he rest in peace, and may God's grace and peace be with your family.

Here are lyrics to the tune you may like better during Mass. I think they are also appropriate for your other circumstance. I am so very sorry for your and your family's loss.

May the Lord, Mighty God
Bless and keep you forever
Grant you peace, perfect peace
courage in every endeavor
Lift your eyes and see His face,
and His grace forever
May the Lord, Mighty God
bless and keep you forever

Thinking of you and your family. I will pray for you all. Remember Dumbledore telling Harry that to the well-ordered mind, death is but the next great adventure? May God comfort you all in your sorrow.
