This post has been swimming around in my head for a few weeks. Just before Christmas we got the e-mail that Fr. Ruehl had passed away. This was the priest who married up and baptized children #s 1, 2, and 5. He retired before we left Virginia, and actually moved about 2 weeks before we did. We’ll really miss him. I was wondering how to describe such a man, but while taking time to wonder I came across a blog post. This woman describes him so well that I wanted anyone who knew him to read it. Also here is his obituary. May his soul and the souls of all the faithfully departed rest in peace. Amen.
