Goodbye, Craig One of my best friends, Craig, whom you’ve read about in this column from time to time, died a few weeks ago. And I want to share a bit with you about this inspirational human being. en-us <function copyright at 0x5ddbed8> Sat, 31 Mar 2012 10:55:05 GMT Steve 98654700-dae3-11e1-a955-1231394043be Sat, 31 Mar 2012 10:55:05 GMT Steve-Brother Francis
My mom and I were present at his "clothing" at the Benedictine Monastery in Three Rivers, Michigan. He gave my mom, (whose name is Frances and is eighty-nine now), a medal of St. Francis, which she treasures to this day. He lived with us for about a year as he made his transition back into his work as an Occupational Therapis at the VA.

From time to time in this life, we are "gifted" by the presence of people who help shape us more and more into the image of Christ. Steve was one such "gift". "May he grow from strength to strength in the life of perfect service in God's kingdom."

Thanks again for this splendid article! ]]> 98653c4c-dae3-11e1-840d-1231394043be Wed, 28 Mar 2012 02:24:32 GMT
