Rev. John F. Harvey, OSFS: 1918 - 2010

Thank you, Father Harvey, for your kindness, compassion, and friendship.  I was so blessed to know you, and now we're all blessed to have a friend like you in heaven.

UPDATE: A Memorial Mass for Fr. Harvey will be held in NYC on Saturday, February 19.

Dear Tina,

Just heard about Father Harvey, What a LEGEND he was.

I'm sure you are grieving. Just wanted to let you know I was thinking of you.

Tina said...

Thanks, Carole.

I went to his funeral on Friday. There was a quiet presence of joy and peace.

I believe he's already in heaven helping us out (because no doubt a few hundred petitions have already been put before him) - poor Father - he just can't get away from us! :)

God bless him - may he fully enjoy his well-deserved eternal reward!

Hello Tina,

I'm thinking of you as well. Father Harvey's rewards in Heaven will be great. I'm so happy for him. His good and awesome work will always continue to inspire people.

Tina said...

Thanks, Helder! It's a great comfort to think of the joy and peace that Father will enjoy in heaven! :)

I stumbled upon this blog quite by accident and smiled when I saw who the lady behind the curtain was, kind of like running into an old friend at the Eaton Centre! : ) May God's Blessings be upon you Christie!
