Death in our Christ Church Family
Monday, April 10th, 2017
With deep sadness, I regret to tell you that Matthew Sames died in Lubbock, Texas sometime last night or early this morning. Matthew died of an accidental drug overdose. Many of you know and love Matthew, a caring, bright, and gifted 28 year old young man.
A funeral service for Matthew will take place on Friday, April 21, at 11:00 a.m. at Christ Church Episcopal.
Please keep Dick and Triana, and Richard and David, and all the other Sames and extended family members in your prayers.
A very practical way to do that is to set a timer on your phone, watch, or other device to beep at you each hour and when it does say a prayer. And if something gets you up in the middle of the night, take a moment to pray for those in grief.
Into your hands, O merciful Savior, we commend your servant Matthew. Acknowledge, we humbly beseech you, a sheep of your own fold, a lamb of your own flock, a sinner of your own redeeming. Receive him into the arms of your mercy, into the blessed rest of everlasting peace, and into the glorious company of the saints in light. Amen.
In Christ - Father Paul Frey, Rector, Mrs. Connie Miles, Parish Secretary
