    Rest eternally in the favor of the Trinity, dear Father Mike.

    Same here, he even posted a blessing for me on my FB page on Tuesday evening.
    People are quick to confuse and despise confidence as arrogance but that is common amongst those who have never accomplished anything in their lives and who have always played it safe not willing to risk failure.

    You may well be the last person he communicated with on this Earth.

    I'm guessing his wife was probably the last one, but close.

    Incredibly sad news. AFAIK Fr Mike was a great man, honest in humanity and noble in spirit. I enjoyed his posts here on TB and especially remember his usual closing line to a prayer request...he was "going to take this upstairs now."

    RIP. Father Mike.

    So very sorry...he sounds like the kind of person the world can ill afford to loose, but has made Heaven a richer place.

    Praying for his dear family. The Lord will provide and make a way for them.

    His will be done.

    I’m sad to hear of his passing, but like someone else mentioned, oh what a joyous homecoming he is experiencing! Praying for the Lord’s comfort for his family and parishioners.

    I've thrown my back out trying to kiss my ass goodbye.

    I have no idea how to embed this type of video, it was a live stream of his funeral.

    Very sorry to hear of his passing. I enjoyed his posts over the years.

    Its in Advanced search, “Tags” field. Tags are great because they can be multi-word. For example, on the dog cancer treatment thread, I added the tag “canine cancer”, which is how one would look ’ it up later. On my Atlas Shrugged thread, I added the tag “atlas shrugged quotes”. Tags should be used very sparingly.
