Greetings and Peace in the Name of our Lord Jesus Christ
The Right Rev. George C. Harris, 5th Bishop of Alaska, died at his home in Aberdeen, South Dakota this morning, Sunday 7 May 2000 at 1:11 AM CST. Mary Jane and Priscilla & Wilson Valentine were with him at the time. George's breathing stopped on the last word of the last prayer of Last Rites and appeared at Peace in that ending moment. All of his children and his brother were here for the past week.
His funeral will be at St. Mark's Episcopal Church in Aberdeen South Dakota. Further plans are not finalized at this writing but information will come as soon as they have been made.
Almighty God, we entrust all who are dear to us to your never-failing care and love, for this life and the life to come, knowing that you are doing for them better things than we can desire or pray for; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
Go forth brave servant, rest in Peace.
For the Harris family,
Wilson Valentine +
