A positive attitude is the key to longevity, there is positive in anything, even Obamacare, as itRead More allows folk to find a use for spending extra money that will help the less fortunate, whether they wanted the healthcare or not. The passengers on the 777 flight are probably safe and secure in Pakistan, held as long term hostages by nefarious folk. Obama will probably win the basketball March madness, since he deems that more important than world affairs, but that's ok, at least something is being accomplished. Keep that positve attitude.

Considering how long and well he lived, we would be wise to heed his advice! Also, the fact thatRead More his son said that he will "miss his companionship" would imply he was a genuine man. I hope my children will miss that about me one day.

How sad. I attended the Shrine for a time and Easton seemed like a solid individual and veryRead More passionate for the faith. He will be missed.

A soul was shot December 28, 2013 in Farmington Hills and now Monsignor has gone to to The Lord too.Read More So young, so sad. God bless them both may Eternal rest, grant unto them O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon them. Being a peacemaker is what it is all about. To we the people; to those in and out of the womb, to the poor, to the confused, to all shades of skin, to the sinner ... God calls us to His Mercy and to show Mercy. Our pain is great that we carry but it becomes greater if we place our pain on anyone else but Jesus. It is for eternal wellness we give up sin. Wellness with God and a hope for eternal wellness for our family and friends, eternal wellness for our neighbors we share our time on Earth with. It is for Peace. It is Peace. Peace. "PEACE ON EARTH TO MEN OF GOOD WILL." - God's Messenger 1st Christmas Peace begins at home. I will work harder at it. So Thankful for Fr. Bill being a Priest so that I could receive Jesus in my First Holy Communion from him, many moons ago. Thankful for his prayers for us. It is grand being back in the fold. Please keep praying for all of us Monsignor Easton. I remember as a child Father Bill at St. Mary's waiting to say good bye to all the parishioners after Mass. He would stand outside of church in front of the Rectory with his huge Saint Bernard dog Gum Drop (properly named :) ) He was very kind to us kids and we loved him and his dog. Always a joy to say hello or goodbye to, except today. May The Lord comfort the Families.

We will never forget Mrs. Yago and all she did for the Davids boys at Longfellow Elementary in RoyalRead More Oak. Our hearts are broken. We are so happy we had a chance to run into her a few years ago and tell her how much we loved her and what she meant to us.
