Wisdom in an Obit

So I was reading the obituaries in the local paper. Don’t laugh too hard if you are in your twenties or so and reading this. You will reach that point too. So I run across an obituary of a lady who just died. She was 101 years old! Born in Richmond of Italian parents, she was known to repeat her mother’s wisdom:

Dio e buono. Dio non ti manda piu di quanto si puo sopportare. So non brontolare!” Or, “God is good. He doesn’t send you more than you can stand. So don’t complain!

There will be a Mass of Christian Burial for this 101-year-old lady. God bless her.
