  1. “Sounds like he lived life to the fullest. Rock on.”

    Absolutely larger than life. Sounds like somebody straight out of “Rescue Me”. Hope he has a fine wake.

  2. Absolve, we beseech Thee, O Lord,
    the soul of Thy servant,
    from every bond of sin,
    that being raised in the glory of the resurrection,
    he may be refreshed among the Saints and Elect.
    Through Christ our Lord.
