Please pray for the soul of my Father

Yesterday, I was informed by a cousin that my father died last night. I am asking you for your prayers for his soul, and for strength for my family as we travel to Belgium for the funeral. My father was looking forward to seeing his grandchildren again in a week's time. They were the pride and joy of his last years. Please pray for the repose of his soul to be guided to the eternal mercy of Our Lord's heart.

Thank you, ladies. At 62, he seems way too young to be gone. At the same time.. he was not well, and had not been for years. Still... it came unexpected. And just with him looking forward to the visit with his grandchildren.
