Charlie Odegard "Among the Saints in Glory"

Our hearts are at the breaking point here at World Library Publications and the J.S. Paluch Company this morning.

I received word very early this morning that Charles Odegard, husband of our marketing director, Jennifer Odegard, died peacefully during the night. Charlie lived with pancreatic cancer for the past seven months. 

If you have a moment right now, please take the time to offer prayers for eternal rest for Charlie and for strength and comfort for Jennifer and her parents and Charlie's family members.

Lord, in our grief we turn to you.
Are you not the God of love
who open your ears to all?
Listen to our prayers for your servant Charles,
whom you have called out of this world:
lead him to your kingdom of light and peace
and count him among the saints in glory.
We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen.

Gotta sing. Gotta pray.
