Richard Collins (“Linen On The Hedgerow”), R.I.P.
This announcement is now posted on Mr Collins’ blog.
It is with great personal sadness that we, the Collins Family, must inform the loyal followers of Linen on the Hedgerow, that our beautiful father, husband and grandfather, Richard Collins, has died peacefully at home this morning surrounded by those who loved him most. He was blessed to receive the Last Rites and Holy Mass was celebrated in the Extraordinary Form at his bedside. Please pray for the repose of his soul.
Eternal rest grant unto him O Lord and let perpetual light shine upon him. May he rest in peace. Amen.
I am not ashamed to say tears don’t.
Read the message attentively, a couple of times.
Please, Lord, make me die in the same way.
REQUIEM aeternam dona ei, Domine, et lux perpetua luceat ei. Requiescat in pace. Amen.
