Memory of Angeline Gaas
- Cousin Bernard, ask this be posted in the Memory of His wife Angeline whom he would have shared 52 years of marriage on May 3 of this year. This weekend Cousin Pat and I had the pleasure of hearing stories about this gracious lady. Bernard asked me to "clean" up the email. I feel it is just right. I was not able to attend the services, but Cousin Pat filled me in. Cousin Angeline was buried in a traditional Czech Service then everyone gathered at her sister-in-law to eat, tell stories, share laughter, and a few tears. All I can add is that Cousin Angeline was born to Moravian Parents who instilled the work and family ethics that many of us have. God Bless this Gentle Quite Moravian Man.Thanks Irene for remembering,,,,The visitation and rosary service here in Victoria was so beautiful, Angeline looked like an angle, The funeral home folks were extra nice and did a wonderful job. At Frenstat , where we buried her starting with a Mass with celebrant, Father Ed Karasek from West,, who is our relative,, a grandson of my dad's sister Emily Gaas, Karasek, Father Ed doesn't miss a thing, and made everyone just feel at home. The tolling of the church bell as we went to the cemetary, the same one that announced the entrance of another of Gods people, a custom I remember since I was a child, The choir started the services with beautiful czech hymns,,, Dravas Maria, and others. Most professional lookin group of Pall Bearers I ever saw,, mostly nephews, my younger bro. Dan and bro. in law Richard Harrison,, and his son,,, another nephew, who also had a bible verse reading,, We haven't seen Angeline in dress clothes in almost ten years, Everything was so nice ,, definitely fitting a saint, which we attributed to her. Oh yes,, the beautiful czech hyms and choir was arranged by Marcella Polansky, Frazzel and her group. Angeline has many relatives buried there and I have all mine, so my children are happy that they now have reserved space among family that goes back a long way,, to be buried when the time comes.My kids will be home the rest of the week so what else can a person say, besides "Thank you Lord".Today would have been Angelines,, and my 52wedding anniversary. I sometimes feel like she was beat out of everything in this life because of her illiness but I guess God wanted it that way for his reasons . I wonder if she remembers us?Yes, Bernard. She is now a guardian angel looking over the two precious grandsons she never got to hold, kiss, or laugh with. paulasmaggie
Angeline certainly was a beautiful woman and Bernard is still her knight in shining armor. Father Ed did a wonderful service and I felt blessed to be there. (It was pretty good to see cuz Pat too! :-o)
To be honest, I still have a hard time equating Father Ed with the quiet young boy who rode the same school bus as me. He always knew what he wanted to be when he grew up! :-}
