To my son Tommy,

As reported by your Great Uncle Kevin about your Great Grandpa Leo.

Last night  0100 hrs. Dad wanted to get up and teach all those who do not know - about JESUS. Then he said "read your bible, and if you do not have one, go buy one and read it so you know what to do. Any questions?"   He was a messenger at that moment. 

I am not sure what to make of this. I am sure the skeptics would say it is his mind, filled with years of catholic tradition, trying to make sense of dying and death, be it his own condition or news of his older sister's death. But unlike most things in life, on this issue I am not a skeptic. True and simple words from a man we all love dearly. I worry though when people get semi-prophetic when they are 93 years old and on home hospice. But if this is a harbinger of what is to come, at least your Great Grandpa Leo has read his bible and will know what to do. I'd follow his advice if I were you.

Sincerely with love from your dad,
