'Band of Brothers' veteran Edward 'Babe' Heffron passed away yesterday at the age of 90.
"O Lord our God, thou who art powerful, thou who strengthens the righteous person with courage and faith, who blesses the humble and lowly, I confess O Lord my fears and my sins before thee. O Lord, be merciful and loving to me thy servant. Be with me, my God, and give me wings like eagles so I can run and not be weary, walk and not faint. We are approaching the time that we "Stand at the Door." Give me the wisdom to know and the courage to believe that thou art always with me and so I have no fear. I ask these things in all humility in your holy name. Amen. "
