My prayer for the week is as follows: Dear God, please let me pass before Mary Bufe. Enlighten her as well on my life and then some, as I would like Mary to write my obituary. I assume she had something to do with her dear mother’s tribute in the March 1 Webster-Kirkwood Times. If correct, God, please let Mary know I am at peace with any embellishment necessary, (with your blessing of course), as I would certainly like my farewell to unveil honeyed moments just as she did for her mother’s, Betty Hodapp. Amen.

The world seems to have been a better place due to Betty just as your paper and our community are with Mary.
