Dear Friends,

Last night while viewing "Life on the Rock" there was mention about the death of someone whose funeral will be held in Florida on Tuesday next.

Does anyone know who it was who passed away?

Alex

Hello Alex, while I didn`t listen to ewtn last night to hear that announcement I think it is probably the husband of Johnette Bankovic. (Sorry, I know I messed up the spelling of that name.) I think the name of her weekly series is the Abundant Life.

It is the husband of Johnnette, Anthony Benkovic, 60, who died last Wednesday evening, after his valiant effort to fight off cancer for the past 2 years came to an end!

Johnnette continues to host "The Abundant Life" seen internationally over at EWTN TV and her "Living His Life Abundantly" and "Moments of Truth Live" radio programs.

May he rest in peace!

Oh dear, that poor woman! May God sustain her! She lost her son a couple of years ago too. frown

Infact, there was a prayer posted for her on this forum at that time by Father Michael Sopoliga. He provided a link to her e-mail for condolences, and I remember receiving a response from her.

May God forgive the sins of her beloved husband, and may his memory be eternal. May our Lady Theotokos console this diligent and faithful worker in her Son's vineyard.

In Christ,
Alice

Eternal Memory to him!

And prayers for our dear media missionary Johnette!
