+Avery Jude+

Friends from our parish here have experienced a horrible tragedy in their home.  While furniture was being rearranged, their 6yr old son, Avery, jumped off the couch, grabbing and pulling the marble mantel down on top of himself.  His best friend and older brother witnessed the accident and said he "saw Avery's soul leave his body."

They are a family of great faith, but after watching several friends walk this road, we know it is not an easy one.  May Our Lady cover them in her mantle of peace, may God the Father give them the strength to face each new day, may Jesus Christ hold them close to his Sacred Heart, and may the Holy Spirit continue to give them signs that Avery is experiencing the eternal JOY of Heaven.

Requiescat in pace, Avery Jude.
