Please pray for deceased friend
« on: August 01, 2009, 07:03:22 PM »
Please pray for the repose of a deceased friend of my family.  Joseph Petaccio Jr. died this morning of brain cancer.  He was a well known figure in the Port Richmond area of Philadelphia. He will be greatly missed.

Joseph A Petaccio Jr.
1941-2009

Sincerely

Robb
Men may dislike truth, men may find truth offensive and inconvenient, men may persecute the truth, subvert it, try by law to suppress it. But to maintain that men have the final power over truth is blasphemy, and the last delusion. Truth lives forever, men do not.

Memory Eternal!
Conquer evil men by your gentle kindness, and make zealous men wonder at your goodness. Put the lover of legality to shame by your compassion. With the afflicted be afflicted in mind. Love all men, but keep distant from all men.
