A favorite memory I have is when I was finally old enough to go hunting with Roger, his brother Tom, and my dad (their uncle John). Before that, when they would return from at days' hunt in Glenmont, I couldn't wait to see what game they had taken, and listen to the telling of the stories. It was so great to be included in that one day.

I pray that Dad Casseday receive now bp his eternal reward! May he begin interceding for us here on earth until we all meet again in heaven. What a day of rejoicing that will be!

I visited the Basilica of Our Lady of Guadalupe in Mexico City, Mexico yesterday and prayed for Dad and for the entire family and all who mourn his home going. May Our Lady, who understood loss and sorrow, console each and every mourner. May your consolation be in our faith in the resurrection from the dead promised us by Christ Our Resurrection!
