Our Paul asked us to document this last part of his son’s life.
Special thanks to Kim Smith, Father Matthew Green and Patricia Natti for providing pictures as well as the music.
During the moving mass by Father Garibaldi, Patricia Natti sang Ave Maria which sent a chill up my spine. I obviously wasn’t about to whip out my camera to record it but was thinking of how nice it would have been to have as the backdrop to the video Paul asked us to take. I said it to Kim Smith who was sitting next to me at the time.
After the ceremony the family gathered downstairs in the church where I ran into Patricia and Father Green who agreed to meet back at the church at 4:30 PM to record the audio for us.
I spoke to Paul and he sends deep thanks for such an act of kindness.
