Dear Our Lady of Peace Family,
So many of you have loved and supported us through this difficult time, and we thank you from the bottom of our hearts. Thank you for the prayers, condolences, cards, letters, and food. Thank you for the hugs, phone calls, and offers of rides. Thank you for your expressions of love, stories of Dad, and gratitude for him.
We know that Deacon Paul touched all your lives, which was evident from the long lines and heartfelt stories. Even though we are sad here on earth, we rejoice that—what he spent his life trying to achieve—he achieved. “Well done, good and faithful servant.”
Most of all, thank you for your prayers. They lift us up and help us carry on until we see him again. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
The Family of Deacon Paul Brachle
