On May 31, after a struggle that was deeply painful for her and for her family and friends, Florence Accetta died in Carmel Richmond Health Care and Rehabilitation Center on Staten Island at the age of 84. She had, among other things, a malignant brain tumor. I am grateful to have known her, to have spent some extra time with her very near the end, and to know that a still better life awaits her than the life she lived on earth.
My wife Janet, my son Nick, and I are no doubt still in need of prayer.
