As if this family has suffered enough.... more on Dr. Rob Susil, M.D., Ph.D

Friends: Before we lose power for the fourth time here in North Bethesda, I wanted to let you know that, with the airports closed over the next two days because of yet another impending snowstorm, the decision was made this morning to defer Rob's funeral Mass until next week.

1. Friends may call at the Mitchell-Wiedefeld Funeral Home, 6500 York Road, Baltimore, MD
     21212, from 3-5 p.m. and from 7-9 p.m. on Monday, 15 February.

2. The Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated at the Cathedral of Mary Our Queen (5300
    North Charles Street, Baltimore, MD 21210) at 11 .m. on Tuesday, 16 February, with internment to
    follow at New Cathedral Cemetery (4300 Old Frederick Road, Baltimore, MD 21229).

Ignore any information in the newspapers to the contrary; I know at least one notice went into the Baltimore Sun before we decided to wait until next week.
Gwyneth asks that, in lieu of flowers, memorial donations be made to either The Sarcoma Federation of America ( or American United for Life (
With continued gratitude for your solidarity in friendship and prayer --

The Sisters of Life count among their numbers a woman from our Parish here in Mattawa who is soon to take her final profession. This is one of the greatest blessings that we have received as a parish. Anytime a religious vocation comes forward from a parish community, many graces flow back to the local church. I can only pray that as the Sisters of Life establish their ministry in Canada that more and more women will join
