Lest we forget

As ever, on this the eleventh day of the eleventh month, I humbly ask friends and readers for prayers for the repose of the souls of my ancestors who served their countries faithfully in the two Great Wars of the last century:

My great grandfather, William Doloughan; my maternal grandfather, Herbert Edward Burkett; and my paternal grandfather, Norman Hucknell White.

Requiem aeternam dona eis, Domine; et lux perpetua luceat eis.

All the best Hilary with the MRI. Have been through similar struggles. Am new to this site....OK, new to technology in general. Am hoping to travel to Italy next year. I live in Australia so it's a long, expensive journey. Am a widow with 4 adult children, 3 grandies. Met you (so to speak) through my sub to The Remnant. Am rambling name is Therese.

Oh, Hilary, I am sorry to hear that. I read your blog regularly, and with great enjoyment - particularly the funny Star Trek posts from a couple weeks back - but I very seldom comment. I hope that whatever it is, it is not so bad, and in the meanwhile, I shall keep you in my prayers.
