Eulogy I gave November 4th, 2017 at my father's memorial service after his death October 25th, 2017.
One of my favorite things to do each year is sit in our living room with a cup of hot cocoa and admire our Christmas tree after the kids have all gone to bed. For me light is an important part of the holiday because of it's symbolic allusions to Christ.
We live for Christ not in order to someday gain His acceptance. We live for Christ because we already have it.
I love to see my daughter pass the sacrament to me. When she does so, she does it with the filial authority only my daughter holds.
