A NOTE from Maurice's Father. . . .

A few days ago [ "autre fois"] I posted the article about the young man Maurice Mannion-Vanover 's story and death.  His father Timothy has sent this note.

Timothy has left a new comment on your post "Lessons in Grace From Maurice Mannion-Vanover - NY...":

I just saw this posting and decided to make a comment. I am Maurice's father and I can tell you that he himself was remarkable! As Stew surmised, Maurice could not only brighten any room but he had a way of brightening peoples' lives. I am glad to see that his life, and death, continues to have a impact.

Thank you, Timothy, for your note.  Yes, many of us were touched by Maurice's story.  Sad, but touched by the beauty of all your love, care, nuturing in your son's life.  Death does not end these stories or this love. . . in eternal life it is perfected.
