Maureen sent an email to say that Barbara Kuhn passed away last night, Monday, January 2, 2006, around 6:30 p.m.
We had been praying for Barbara during petitions at Mass the last couple of weeks, so we knew that she was near the end. She had been so very private during her illness, seeing hardly anyone, not even long-time friends.
She and Michael Winters traded weeks with Will and Bridget during inquiry in the summer of 2002. She as much as anyone is responsible for the formation of my faith. I’ll always remember her, how she preferred to think of the Lord’s Prayer as ending with “Leave us not in temptation,” rather than “lead.”
Et exspecto resurrectionem mortuorum. Et vitam venturi saeculi. Amen.
