Theresa McDowell wrote a sympathy message

“So sorry for your loss. He was a devoted and prayerful man and it was a privilege to know him. He once shared that st 11 o’clock pm he sat on his couch and said his night prayers and then went to bed. I found it amazing that he was awake still at 11 and then the next morning he was up and out the door for early mass. May his soul rest in peace. Theresa McDowell”
