Matlock Hendey
Rest In Peace
May 31, 1987 - March 29, 2006

It seems fitting that our last picture of Matlock shows him helping Eric with his science fair project - he was always a special part of our family. Matlock died peacefully in his sleep today after a difficult week. He was loved, and he will be greatly missed.

Blessed are you, Lord God,
maker of all living creatures.
On the fifth and sixth days of creation,
you called forth fish in the sea,
birds in the air and animals on the land.
You inspired St. Francis to call all animals
his brothers and sisters.
We ask you to bless this animal.
By the power of your love,
enable it to live according to your plan.
May we always praise you
for all your beauty in creation.
Blessed are you, Lord our God, in all your creatures! Amen.
