Simply an Honor

Friday greetings from sunny Chicago.

It has certainly been an emotional week here at our offices. You know, the J.S. Paluch Company and World Library Publications, its music and liturgy division, adopt the culture of family as an organization. For 100 years (J.S. Paluch began in 1913), the same Catholic family has been at the helm of this organization and has cultivated a sense of care and compassion. I have seen thatin action in so many ways this week as we have assisted Jennifer Odegard in the preparations for the celebration of her husband Charlie's life. Charlie was 48 and died this week after living with pancreatic cancer for seven months. Today, I am so grateful to the members of the teams here at J.S. Paluch and World Library Publications. It is an honor to work here.

Please continue your prayers for Jennifer and for Charlie's extended family of friends, his colleagues of the Chicago Police Department, and for the many who were touched by his life.

Gotta sing. Gotta Pray.

Thank you Jerry - and to all who help to promote such care and goodness. Prayers to you, your WLP family community, and especially Charlie and Jen.

May God surround you all with much grace, comfort, and love in these days and journey ahead.
