Mahlon H. Myers, the father of our Fr. Gabriel and his brother John, died on April 7 at the age of 90 after a long period of declining health. The funeral service was held three days later in the chapel of the Telford Lutheran Community, a retirement center in Telford, Pennsylvania, where Mr. Myers had been living after the death of his wife, Naomi, several years ago. Fr. Gabriel gave an inspiring and often humorous eulogy before a full congregation, which included Abbot James and Br. Dunstan.
