Celebration of Life

We all travelled to Rock Hill to for Pop Pop's funeral and for the celebration of his life.  The day we arrived, a retired priest, who lived in the retirement community, offered to say a mass at Pop Pop's house for his family.  I have never attended a private mass in someone's home but was so impressed by this beautiful gesture.  You can see he set up a simple altar in Pop Pop's living room and said a simple mass for us Thursday evening.  Rob, Steven, Stacey, Anthony and our whole family was present for this beautiful offering and we were able to pray and to share some of our memories together that night.
