Saints of God, come to Dick's aid!
Come to meet him, angels of the Lord!

May Christ, who called you, take you to himself; may angels lead you to Abraham's side.
[Response] Receive his soul and present him to God the Most High.

We ask this through Christ our Lord.

Thank you all. He's in California, so I won't be able to attend his funeral. Instead, we had a little prayer service here.
