So, it's All Saints Day, 2011, and we're deciding between mass at our home parish of Saint Francis of Assisi in Sacramento:
or Catholic Newman on campus at UC Davis:
Also, tomorrow is all souls day, a day when we remember in prayer those who've journeyed on from this life...
Although they passed a few years ago, especially foremost in our prayers this year are: my dad (Dave's grandpa) Peter-Fenn Samuelson; Dave's and my great-aunt Julia Mackedon; Dave's and my great-aunt Lily Samuelson, and "Auntie Mary", the aunt of David's beloved godmother, Lauren Brietenbeucher. More recently,(and quite sadly because he was young), our friend Steven Nicholls passed on last year.
May they rest in peace.
