Brother Gerard Foley, 1929 – 2012 AD

Brother Gerard Foley, Trappist Monk, RIP

My Uncle Dick, known by his brothers at Our Lady of Guadalupe Trappist Abbey as Brother Gerard, left this worldly plane (sp?) of existence last night around 11:15pm Pacific time. The journey he began in service to the Lord 56 years ago is finally over, and he is now able to claim his reward for his faithful life of service to the world. He was in hospice care for the last two weeks or so, had lost his appetite and was in steady pain. Thankfully, he was able to go back to the monastery which he called home for his final day here on Earth.  Click the image below to visit his memorial gallery.
