Other Requiescat in pace by Jeffrey Miller May 25, 2006 written by Jeffrey Miller May 25, 2006 A reader passes on the sad news that Fr. Reitmeyer of the blog A Son becomes a Father was killed in a watercraft accident. The article didn’t release the name of the person killed, but the information I received was that it was indeed him. Please send your prayers his way. 10 comments 0 FacebookTwitterGoogle +Pinterest Jeffrey Miller previous post Pope in Poland next post Polish Relief Fund You may also like Daily Readings December 4, 2006 Not quite "Family Video" August 1, 2004 Fr.

I will miss his thoughts & reflections. Thank you for letting us know. May his soul rest in the warmth of his merciful Father & receive a welcome embraced by his Blessed Mother. May graces of strength be giving to his family and his parishioners and all you loved him dearly. Anthony Urban May 25, 2006 - 2:16 pm He was a priest for my Diocese and a darn good one at that. He was a good and holy priest and we (the seminarians of the diocese) deeply admired him. Br Lawrence Lew, OP May 25, 2006 - 4:54 pm Thank you for bringing this tragic news to our attention. May he rest in peace. Big Tex May 25, 2006 - 5:52 pm Fr. Todd was quite the guy from stories we heard about him. He was 7 years ahead of me at Texas A&M and active at Saint Mary’s Catholic Church there in College Station. I was just reading his posts about this vacation he was on. I could just see so many of the things he was talking about, local hangouts and parks in central Texas (kinda made me homesick). For those in the area: The Rosary is on Monday at 7:30, and funeral on Tuesday at 10 a.m. Both will be at Santa Cruz Catholic Church in Buda. (Buda is south of Austin on I35.) Requiescat in pace, Fr. Todd. Gig ’em! Gretchen May 25, 2006 - 5:54 pm The notes that Fr. Todd wrote about his vacation — how much he was looking forward to going home — really struck me. He could not be more at ‘home’ than he is now – and I know that the joy he felt in anticipation of his earthly homecoming is as nothing compared to the joy he must be experiencing in the arms of God. We have a new friend in heaven — Richard May 25, 2006 - 8:09 pm I don’t want to rain on some people’s parades here, but if Fr. Todd was here, the LAST thing he’d say is, “Assume I made it.” He’d be asking for our prayers and intercessions if he is in purgatory. Saying, “He’s in a better place” or “He’s is heaven” is a huge disservice to Fr. Todd. I knew him, personally, so I am not spekaing of things I don’t know. dymphna May 25, 2006 - 9:18 pm May he rest in peace. Elena May 26, 2006 - 6:55 am I was just thinking how much St. Blog’s really is becoming like a real parish. We have births, we have deaths, and they both really touch us. Thank you Jeff for spreading the news on this. Father will be missed. Gretchen May 26, 2006 - 11:33 am Rest assured, he is in my prayers. Basil Knebel May 26, 2006 - 4:53 pm Curt Jester, Et.Al: I knew Fr. Todd personally (in the flesh!) and what a great man he was. He mentioned on his blog a while back about wanting a desktop computer for his parish. I’m trying to arrange the funds and such for the purchase in his memory. If anyone is willing to help, please email me (email@example.com) Thanks so much and God Bless Fr. Todd. Comments are closed.
