Prayers, please for a dear priest ....

Here's the final update ...
Dear Friends in Christ:

It is my sad duty to announce that my close, personal friend of 44 years, Rev. James G. Dull, passed to his eternal reward on Friday, December 11, 2009 at 4:10 p.m. in Rex Hospital, Raleigh, NC following a ten day coma from which he never awakened. His passing was preceded by a prayer vigil during which his life sustaining systems were removed. Bishop Burbidge, Monsignor David Brockman, Vicar General, and four other brother priests, along with his brother and sister participated. He looked serene and happy, and was beloved by everyone who knew him. Please remember him in your prayers. God bless you.

Sincerely yours in Christ,

Father Sal Busichio
This is such a sad thing ... Fr. Jim was a wonderful man, dedicated to being a good priest.  Prayers for all his family and friends.

I got this email today ....
It is with sadness of heart that I inform you that my loyal, devoted friend of 44 years, Father James G. Dull, is very close to death. He is resting comfortably at Rex Hospital, Raleith, NC, where he has been in a coma since Sunday, November 28, 2009, resulting from a rare bacterial infection which caused bacterial meningitis that spread swiftly to his brain and spinal cords. Father Jim has been given the best of care by the excellent staff at Rex, and everything which could have been done to cure his infection was done. Unfortunately, the brain was damaged to the extent that he is on the verge of brain death. Bishop Burbidge, Monsignor David Brockman (the Vicar General) and the entire medical staff will arrange that his passing is done in the presence of his family members (two brothers and one sister), the Bishop and Vicar General, and me. Please keep him--and us--in your prayers.

Please pray for this wonderful priest ... that his death be a holy one ... and for those who love him!
