Requiescat in pace

According to this report the man killed in this watercraft accident on Lake Travis near Austin yesterday was Fr. Todd Reitmeyer, longtime blogger, priest of the Diocese of Sioux Falls. It is heartbreaking to read his latest blog entries as he prepared for and began his vacation with his family in Texas. As this January post from his archives suggests, he had been thinking about preparations for death for awhile. Dealing as he did as a priest with funerals and seeing how a lack of preparation could cause family infighting, he had begun a list of things to take care of in advance to help you avoid leaving your family in that situation. It's worth considering.

Requiescat in pace, Father Todd.
