Henry W. Lyall
We were recently informed that fellow comrade, Henry W. Lyall, passed away on June 26,
2002. He served with the 501st in the 326th during 1952 and 1953. Pray with me, please:
Dear Lord God, Father of all, we commend into your eternal kingdom the soul of our brother
and fellow comrade, Henry Lyall, ever trusting in the hope of the Resurrection through our Lord
and Savior Jesus, the Christ of God. We ask You, O God, to comfort his wife, Catherine, and
the family with the peace of Christ that passes all understanding. Amen and Amen.
Longfellow wrote: "Even HE who died for us on the cross, in the last
hour, in the unutterable agony of death, was mindful of His mother; as if to
teach us that this holy love should be our last worldly thought." God be
with you and your families.
