I write to ask prayers for the soul of my first cousin, Gerry Manna, 61, who passed this morning, in the USA, from what appears to be a heart attack. He was one who took care of everyone else but himself. He died without the consolation of the Sacraments. He is survived by his only daughter and by his sister and mom.
Please also say a prayer for these three women, who looked to Jerry for everything. They are very much distraught and have no one nearby to lean upon.
Gerry is one of the only two cousins I have. His sudden loss to me is a great tragedy and sadness which I cannot describe.
Please pray for his soul. Especially to Our Lady of Sorrows.

Gerry will be in my prayers Br. Alexis. God rest his soul.
oh, I am very sorry for your loss. Yes, I offer my heartfelt prayers for the repose of Gerry’s soul; for unfailing consolation for you, and his daughter, sister, and mom.
I’m so sorry to hear this, dear Brother Alexis. Prayers offered. May Our Lady of Sorrows’ prayers for the repose of this good soul Gerry Manna be heard and answered, and may She console all who are mourning. 🙏
I am so sorry for your loss. May eternal rest grant unto him and perpetual light shine upon him and the faithful departed rest in peace. May God bless you. I will be praying for all of you. Sent from my Samsung Galaxy smartphone.
I will pray for Gerry and his family. Did he live is a “hotspot”? We just found out that Doug’s (husband) brother has brain cancer. He has been the sole caregiver for his son with auticism. Rough. We pray that he returns to the Church. Thanks for sharing. Is there someone I could send a Mass care to for Gerry? Prayers for you too. Betty
Of course. A cousin of mine died suddenly in UK a week ago but he had his wife & two of his family with him when he passed. It is a shock, especially when one can’t be with them on account of the complete lockdown. Prayer & time will help & with the Church in such distress not being able to celebrate Easter as it always did, along with the hideous shutdown leading to all kinds of detriment, our minds will be distracted. RIP Gerry!
Yes certainly Brother, prayers going up. May God take him into heaven and comfort you and your family, amen.
Requiem aeternam dona eus, Domine:
et lux perpetua luceat eus.
What Father Walter said. My prayers join with everyone else’s prayers.
Dearest Bro. Alexis,
Our prayers for the eternal repose of +GERRY.
May he rest in God’s eternal peace. Amen.
Amen, Fr. Walter.
Very sorry to hear about this great loss of your dear cousin Gerry. Our household will be offering the Holy Week prayers for the repose of the soul of your dear cousin, Gerry Manna, and all his family.
May Christ support us all the day long, till the shadows
lengthen, and the evening comes, and the busy world is
hushed, and the fever of life is over and our work is done.
Then in His mercy may He give us a safe lodging, a holy rest
and peace at the last.
