We would like to quote from a prayer by Cardinal Newman:

“May He support us all the day long, till the shades lengthen, and the evening comes, and the busy world is hushed, and the fever of life is over, and our work is done. Then, in His mercy, may He grant us a safe lodging, and a holy rest and peace at last.”

This is our prayer for our beloved brother and uncle, Edward.
