Mr. C Has Died

Pat Caurant died Saturday morning at 12:20 p.m. The family was able to find recipients for some of his organs, so Pat has given the gift of life to several others. I think he would have liked that.

I've also been reading the tributes left by friends, family, students (current and former), faculty, staff, parents of students. "Mr. C" had a huge impact on those around him, especially his students. It's a tough lesson for young adolescents to face: that God can call us at any time, and, in fact, does. The first day of school will be very solemn for the Middle School, who expected to see Mr. C there, waiting for them.

He will be. I can't imagine Mr. C not "hovering" in the back of the room, the patron saint of Math & Science and 7th Graders at St. Joesph's School!

Thank you all for your prayers. Thanks to Julie D. of Happy Catholic for posting my request on her site as well.
