I just got an email about one of my fellow choir members. He was always working around the church on any project they had going. Several weeks ago, he was helping set up for the parish festival and was on the roof of the school, and fell off the roof. His injuries were very serious and he passed away the other day. His funeral is next week. His wife is also in our choir. This will be a difficult funeral to sing for. So sad, he will be missed by a lot of people.

Jean, so sorry to hear this. That will be the hardest funeral for your choir to sing at.

Oh Jean, I'm so sorry - how very, very sad. We feel so much because we dare to love so freely. May your friend's family (and YOU too!) be comforted by 'that peace that surpasses understanding' and may you know that you are loved and cared for here with your forum family of friends.

What a tragedy! I imagine it will take much strength to maintain your composure singing for this particular funeral. Sorry for your loss, Jean.

Oh Jean, I am so sorry this has happened. I know you are sad and I feel for his family. I know you will be strong for his wife and I will pray for you to have that strength because she will need all the support she can get. I know you know this as a widow yourself. Hugs to you during this time.

Condolences to you and your church family, Jean...it is hard to sing at funerals when you know the deceased well...I've done it many times!

Oh good grief, this is horrible news. I am so sorry Jean. This is one reason I do not do ladders or roofs and won't let Luscious. Scares me worse than spiders.
My deepest and heartfelt condolences for you and your parish. I am certain it will be more than difficult to sing at that time but I am sure he shall be missed far more. Hugs to you, dear one.
