Mr Derrick Taylor, R.I.P.

I am celebrating a funeral in the Traditional Form of the Roman Rite tomorrow at 12 noon for Mr Derrick Taylor, who attended Mass with his wife here and died suddenly after a heart attack. He leaves behind nine children and uncountable grandchildren and great grand-children. The Taylors are a family who have long had a great love of the Traditional Form of the Mass since the 1970's when the changes came in. A great Catholic and a kindly man. The Taylors are well known in this part of the world, so, of course, anyone who knew Derrick is most welcome.

May he rest in peace. Amen.

Although I have offered Requiem Mass on All Souls Day for a number of years now, this will be my first actual funeral. We will be blest to have chant, so it will be Missa Cantata (without the need to try and tease out a decent sound from our little electric organ - although some organists do indeed manage to get a very decent sound out of it.

I had the privilege of knowing Derrick, he will be missed.

Eternal rest grant unto him, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon him. May he rest in peace. Amen.
