Man (Still) at Work

No, the planned Jan. 1 renovation of my little blog didn’t occur. Unfortunately, I can’t chalk this one up to simple procrastination; on Dec. 28, my father, Joseph Gallagher, died.

To say he was a great man and a tremendous influence doesn’t even scratch the surface. He made an indelible impression on many lives — most of all on me and my brother — and he left us all with many heartfelt and joyous memories. I’ll have more to say about him after the funeral on Monday, but I wanted to take a moment to note his passing — and to thank God for bringing him into our lives.

“Eternal rest grant unto him, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon him. May his soul, and the souls of the all the faithful departed, through the mercy of God rest in peace. Amen.”
