Losing a friend

This morning we lost our dear friend, Ray Huseman, who has been fighting leukemia for two years. He is the brother of Sister Mary Michael, and he was always a rock of prayer, faith, and trust in God. After a great battle, Ray is now well and safe...and in a position to help us with our earthly battles until we are together forever, safely enfolded in the unending Love of the Blessed Trinity. Ray was family to all of us here in Panhandle, someone who loved serving the Sisters and welcomed us into his and Kim's home at any time. He was a man who loved being Catholic and could defend his Faith to anyone, including any Jehovah's Witnesses who were fortunate enough to knock on his door! Ray was a man of prayer, who even in the darkest moments of his diagnosis, knew and trusted that there was a higher Plan than what he could see. We will miss him, and we will ask him to intercede for us in time to come. We ask your prayers for his family. Eternal rest grant unto him, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon him. May he rest in peace.
