In Memory of Father "Tony"

Father "Tony"
July 1963/June 2010
This post is in memory of my friend's son, who passed away on Friday from a massive hart attack while jogging. Tony was an ordained Roman Catholic priest and Benedictine monk at Marmion Abbey monastery where he taught theology and physical education to the young men of Marmion Academy high school. My heart and prayers goes out to Mary, her family and friends who have shed so many tears on the loss of this young man.

So sorry to hear this, it must have been such a shock to lose him like this! Much too young.

That is just so sad. I have a son born in June 1963. I can't even imagine losing him. My son didn't know of his heart problem either, but 3 yrs. ago, almost collapsed in the shower. Wound up with 4 stints.
My heart and prayers go out to his family.

This is very hard for the mother and all others friends and relatives. I wish them the power and the reliance that they are not alone in their pain. I have myself a son and can imagine how deep suffer it is.
