Into the Mercy

Just fifteen minutes before the hour of mercy, 3PM, my mother, Eleanor Bonk Crafa, left this vale of tears to fly into the loving merciful arms of Jesus.

She was surrounded by her family and we prayed a Chaplet of Divine Mercy to send her off. She had been given an Apostolic Blessing, and received holy communion this morning.

It was a happy death.

Eternal rest grant unto her, O Lord, and may perpetual light shine upon her.May her soul and the souls of the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace.

Oh Leticia,

I am sorry for your loss. I will be praying for you as you grieve your mothers death and for your mothers soul.

What a wonderful grace to have such a holy death.

What a beautiful way to die. God bless you for being such a good, devoted daughter and making sure your dear mom had access to all the sacraments (and an Apostolic Blessing as well!)

Much love and prayers,
