Dear forum community,
I'm sad to share that our forum member Latin Trad passed away last year of cancer.
This forum has been so wonderful with prayerful support over many years .....

O God of all spiritual and corporeal beings, You Who trampled death, broke the power of Satan and granted life to the whole world, now, O Lord, grant rest to the soul of Your departed servant, our friend and brother, LatinTrad, in a place of light, freshness, and peace, where there is neither pain, nor sorrow, nor mourning.

As You are a gracious God and the Lover of mankind, forgive him every transgression committed by him in word, deed, or thought, since there is no man alive who has not sinned, for You alone are without sin and You are the Resurrection and the Life, O Christ our God, and we render glory to You, together with Your Eternal Father, and Your most Holy, gracious, and life-giving Spirit, now and ever and forever.

May his memory be eternal and may his loved ones be comforted in the prayerful expectation of being reunited with him in Heaven.

Looking back through Latin Trad's posts from the time he joined in 2002 until he last posted 3 years ago, I found memories of him coming back to me - good ones. He was a fairly prolific poster - his 915 posts place him in the top 100 forum posters.

He came to us as a grad student; we prayed him through grad school, his wedding, the miseries of fighting a car dealership, a trip west, his doctoral studies, and a (successful) job application. He and James/Jakub enjoyed a good-natured long-running feud centered on the Yankees and Red Sox.

Despite a username which probably initially caused some of us a bit of angst, I don't think anyone could suggest that he ever took on any of the dreaded roles that might have been inferred from his nick. He himself went so far as to ask forum members in an open thread whether it offended and should he change it? The consensus was no.

Through the kindness of our sister, Communion of Saints, who provided it to me, I am posting a link to a very warm tribute paid to our brother from the college community in which he taught. He suffered through 5 bouts of cancer over a period of 9 years and never gave up, passing away at 37 and leaving a wife and three young children. I thought folks might like to read a bit about Brendan John Augustine McGuire. May his memory be eternal!
