In Loving Memory of Fr. Kunz

In Loving Memory Fr. Alfred Joseph Kunz
Born April 15, 1930
Ordained to the Sacred Priesthood May 26, 1956
Born into Eternal Life March 4, 1998
Requiescat in Pace.
The souls of the just are in the Hands of God,
and no torment shall touch them.
They seemed, in view of the foolish, to be dead:
but they are in Peace.
In loving memory of
a faithful priest
eminent canonist
beloved pastor who, like
Christ, gave himself,
pouring out his blood
for the Church.
May he rest in Peace.

If I could recall all that this wonderful priest was and all that he did for the care of souls, there probably wouldn't be enough space here nor the time to complete it. He suffered a white martyrdom for the 7 years I knew him yet he smiled and often laughed til he cried. And his life ended in a martyrdom of blood and I am guessing he has since been smiling and laughing.
