Having lived with his sister, Sr. Roseann, I always treasured his visits with us in Minnesota. He is a memorable person for his zeal, passion, and energy that he worked hard to preserve. I remember him as a man of deep faith and love for his family and those he worked with throughout his life.
My prayers are with him as he joins his family members in eternal peace.

I’m so sorry for your loss. I can only imagine how you must feel. I have found comfort in scriptures like Job 14:14,15 which remind me that God cares so deeply for us that he yearns for the day when he will bring us back to life on earth (John 5:28, 29). I hope that these words bring you comfort as well.
You may contact me personally if you wish to know more about the hope that God gives us in his word that there will be a resurrection.

We are sorry to hear of Fr. Simon's passing, though he is in paradise this day. He was a dedicated missionary and priest. He was also a cousin who was interested in our family history. We enjoyed many visits from him and his sisters when our dad was still around.
