Remembering Saint Pamela Jean

“Go with Jesus…Go with Jesus to His heaven. And may Seth keep you safe as you go, ridding all monsters and evil things from your path. We welcome you to the ranks of our blessed dead, Pamela; go and be well. Homage to our blessed dead; amen.”
These are the words I said at 2:25 PM EST on October 14, 2015, when my mother-in-law joined our ancestors. My wife, her aunt, and a close family friend begged me to say a prayer right as Pamela was giving up the ghost. I had no time to prepare; I just said the first things that came to mind.
And I trembled.
I had never seen another human being pass away before.
May the cherished memories of our ancestors keep all of us warm on these cold, dark autumn nights. May we all have the happiest Halloween we can possibly have.
Gods bless you all.
