Lord, please have mercy on William.
There should be a list you can put your name on - ask the greeter about this. Losing your closest friends and having a strained relationship with your father is more than a good enough reason.
William, are you in the process of converting (inquirer or catechumen)? If so, you will be prayed for when the Priest prepares the Lamb (Eucharist) before the service. If you will ask someone at your church, I'm sure they can show you and tell you more.
