Sharron and I have made nine major moves during our 45 years together. Happily, we have been able to sink taproots into the special ‘family’ community of Good Shepherd. Having been in the multi-line insurance business for 31 years, we have seen the family trauma when there has been little or no end-of-life planning. We have foregone burial in a National Cemetery though my ten years in the Air Force make that an option. Instead, we purchased a niche in the GSCC Columbarium having fallen in love with its unique setting. We visualize Christ on the crucifix in the main sanctuary wrapping His arms around the Community of Saints – the congregation and those inurned in the Columbarium. Moreover, when, during the Eucharistic Prayer, the Presider remembers those who have died in the peace of Christ, he will be able to look at those of us in the Columbarium. Further, Sharron and I will be remembered during services in the Marian Garden honoring the Blessed Mother. Thus, we will remain members of the Good Shepherd ‘family’ for eternity.
