James L'Heureux, my wife's uncle, died this 8:30 AM EST this morning, just two days shy of his 55th birthday. His death follows a 24-year battle with cancer. Prayers requested for the repose of his soul. His suffering is now ended.
In Paradisum deducant te angeli: in tuo adventu suscipiant te martyres,
et perducant te in civitatem sanctam Jerusalem.
Chorus angelorum te suscipiat, et cum Lazaro quondam paupere,
aeternam habeas requiem.
May the angels lead you into Paradise; may the martyrs come to welcome you,
and take you unto the holy city, Jerusalem.
May the choirs of angels welcome you, where Lazarus is no longer poor,
may you have eternal rest.
Remember the promise of Christ:
Ego sum resurrectio et vita: qui credit in me, etiam si mortuus fuerit, vivet:
et omnis qui vivit et credit in me, non morietur in aeternum.
I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in me, though he is dead, shall live,
and whoever lives and believes in me shall never die.
