May perpetual light shine upon Rosie

I posted the following at 9:32, right after getting this email:

Rosie was just anointed by Fr. Hildebrand Garceau, O. Praem.; she's not very conscious and is struggling to breathe. Please keep her in your loving prayers.

--Dan Grimm (her father)

Eternal Father, we offer You the Body and Blood, Soul and Divinity of Your dearly beloved Son, our Lord Jesus Christ, in atonement for our sins and those of the whole world. For the sake of His sorrowful passion, have mercy on us and on the whole world, especially Rosie.

Blessed Miguel Pro, pray for us.

Soon afterwards, I found out Rosie Grimm had passed from this life into eternity a few minutes before, at the age of 26. :_(

Feel free to send a good message to the family via messaging "Rosie Grimm" on Facebook; I will post any memorial info I receive.  This is the first time I've watched a Facebook friend pass into eternity via cyberspace.  It is so sad to see years of pictures of plays she's been in and Scrabble games she's played; it is so beautiful to see her wall flooded every 2 minutes now with messages of love and remembrance from so many lives she has touched.  From "Enjoy Paradise sweet Rosie; we love you!" to "the heavenly choir gained a beautiful voice today" to the most recent:

 In the first play I ever directed, "A Midsummer Night's Dream," seven-year-old Rosie Grimm played a dancing fairy. Her radiance as a child is the most definitive thing that I remember about her, and that she should now be the first member of that cast to pass away grieves me deeply. Rest in peace.

At least we can "be there" in some way for her and the family online.  Along with prayers, messages of love on her wall/inbox would be appreciated I'm sure, or to her sister Wendy-Irene  

Thank you all for praying for this young woman who is now in the arms of Christ.  Please continue to pray for the family as they cope with the loss of a young daughter, sister, aunt, and friend.

"We will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet them in the air. 
And so we will be with the Lord forever. Therefore encourage each other with these words."
1 Thessalonians 4
