Dorothy and family, tried to get in touch a cuple of times yesterday but failed. I wanted you to know I offered the Mass in Iuka last evening for "Arby" and will pray for you all over these days. I hope to visit with you later on, maybe in a couple of weeks. I am leaving for my annual retreat early Monday morning, so I will not make either the visitation or the funeral service. I wish I had had the opportunity to know "Arby" and all of you before this moment, but hopefully in the future I can do that. The good we are and experience and have does not depend on our coming to church; it comes from God's great love and goodness to us. I know your husband and father lived in that reality which you shared with me on Friday night: you said "he is a good man". I know that is true. I hope in the future to walk some of the steps of life with you, especially the difficult days ahead feeling loss. Again, if there is anything I can do for you, for your family at this time, please do not hesitate to call on me. Fr. Rich Smith
