By now you’ve joined the shock and sadness over Whitey’s sudden death, of a heart attack brought on by aneurysm while he was working in Cambridge yesterday. Jean, Alex, Andrew, Christopher, Barbara and little Ryan and Darryl are buoying up one another together with the many folks calling and coming to the door.
The plans for remembering Whitey are these:
There will be visiting hours at the Sullivan Home (43 Winn Str., Burlington), Monday, 4-8 (followed by Masonic service).
The funeral will be at Burlington Presbyterian Church (335 Cambridge St., Burlington) Tuesday, 11 am, followed by burial at Chestnut Hill Cemetery, then a reception at St. Malachy’s Church (99 Bedford Street St., Burlington).
Betty Doubek will be coordinating the reception.
You might remember that Whitey was scheduled to be “guest” preacher for this Sunday. By God’s grace, Whitey had already finished preparing his sermon–and it will be the basis of the message Sunday. I will be there, rather than away.
I hope that many of you will be able to be there, too. It is a time when many in our church family will be need the reminder of the strength of our bonds in Christ.
