Final Flight

As some of you may have heard by now, my dad passed away in his sleep early this morning.  As you can imagine, we already miss him dearly and his passing was a tremendous loss for our entire family.  Thank you again for your love, kind words, and prayers.  This site was a wonderful source of support for my dad and my family when we desperately needed it over the past month.  Words cannot describe how much all of you mean to us.

Visitation will take place on Monday, June 30, from 3:00 PM to 8:00 PM, with a prayer service at 8:00. The funeral mass will be at 11:00 AM on Tuesday, July 1, with a 1-hour visitation prior to the service.  His burial and a luncheon will follow the mass.  The visitation, funeral mass, and luncheon will be held at St. Patrick Catholic Church, located at 1500 Vine Street, Hudson, WI 54016.  There is a brief obituary in the St. Paul Pioneer Press, which can be found on their website and will be published in both tomorrow's paper and the Sunday paper.  A more detailed obituary will be published in the Hudson Star Observer either this coming week or the following week.  The obituary and funeral arrangement details can be found at  http://www.oconnellfuneralhomes.com/.
