I am so very sorry to report that Fr. Joseph Gancila, who came to the funeral parlor and spoke about my sister Elena and who said the funeral Mass for her died today. Please remember him in your prayers.

Dear Family

My sincere condolences to the family. It’s not easy to loose the one we love but God in he’s wisdom
gave us hope thru his words (Bible) in 2 Corinthians 1:3,4 says “ Praised be the God and father of our Lord
JesusChrist, the father of tender mercies and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our trials so that we may be able to comfort others in any sort of trials with the comfort that we recieve from God”Hoping this scripture will give you peace and endurance at this time knowing we’re not
alone we have someone that cares for us and it will give you comfort.

Over the years, but particularly in recent years, Elena would remind me that she wanted me to speak at her funeral service. I would always try to put off her requests with a joke. “I’m not ready to write one just yet,” I’d say, or “You’ve got a long way to go before that day comes.”
Well, that day has now come, and I really am as ill-prepared today as I have been all along to perform this service for her, but I will try to do my best and keep my remarks to a minimum.
What can I say that is enlightening to an audience that knew her so well? We all know she was courageous. Given all she went through over these past few years with her deteriorating health is clearly evidence of her bravery. She was outspoken. Everyone knew what she meant when she said what she meant. She was critical when she had to be, but fiercely loyal to her family and her friends no matter what the situation. She was honest to a fault. She was very perceptive; in our frequent phone conversations, she often saw things I had failed to notice. She was an excellent storyteller, keeping us laughing at our, and frequently, her own expense.
I called her about once a week, and we brought each other up-to-date on family and friends. I last spoke to her Tuesday morning of this week on my way to school. She was very upset about potentially having to remain in the hospital over Christmas and was anxious to go home. I know that her debilitating illness was wearing down her resolve to continue fighting, and a part of me thinks she wanted to go home to be with our parents, other family, and friends who had passed.
Elena was religious. She believed in God and in Heaven. And that is where I like to think she is now, looking down on us and smiling at the turnout!
It is often said that people are not gone if we continue to talk about them, or to them from time to time, or remember them silently. A longtime family friend of our parents used to visit his father’s grave site every few weeks to bring his Dad up-to-date on the family and on the family’s business. In that same sense, I’m sure Elena will never truly die. When we have finished processing our grief, we will tell stories about her, and we will laugh as we know she would at the same stories.
Let me close with two brief passages that do a much better job of summarizing what I really want to say about Elena, and what I think she would say to us if she were here now.
Here’s the first, on the memorial card of my brother-in-law Carl Hohmann, who passed 14 months ago at the age of 65. God took him much too soon as He did Elena:
"When I leave you, don’t weep for me. Pass the wine around and remember how my laughing pleased you. Look at one another, smiling, and don’t forget about touching. Sing the songs that I loved best and dance one time all together. As for me, I’ll be off, running somewhere on the beach, and I’ll fly to the top of the tree I always meant to climb. When you are ready, I’ll be there, waiting for you. Take your time."
The second is a passage I came across, author unknown, some years ago and saved on my computer to recite in my eulogy for Elena:
"As I sit in Heaven and watch you everyday, I try to let you know with signs I never went away. I hear you when you are laughing and I watch you as you sleep. I even place my arms around you to calm you as you weep. I see you wish the days away begging to have me home, so I try to send you signs so you know you are not alone. Don’t feel guilty that you have life that was denied to me. Heaven is truly beautiful, just you wait and see. So live your life, laugh again, enjoy yourself, be free. Then I know with every breath you take, you’ll be taking one for me."
Goodbye, Elena. I will miss you terribly, but I know that before too long we will be reunited on the other side.
Your Brother, John
