Paul Meyers, son of Margaret Mary Meyers has gone home to God

Margaret Mary wrote a story about her two sons Paul and Peter entitled "If I had Known". 
She has just experienced an unexpected and tragic loss of her young son. 

From Margaret Mary Meyers Facebook page;

We are devastated. Please pray for our family. Our Paul (our son) passed away in his sleep this morning. He was 26, lived in Kentucky, was the light of our lives. I can't think of anything else to say.

  Please keep Paul and the entire Meyers family in your prayers.

Eternal Rest grant unto him, O Lord, and may perpetual light shine upon, him. May his soul and all the souls of the faithful departed, in the mercy of God, rest in peace.

My interview with the Long Island Catholic

I lived most of my life on Long Island, NY. I told the reporter the story of how "A Special Mother is Born" came to be.

Here's an excerpt;

Velasquez said “A Special Mother is Born,” “my own story of Christina’s birth,” was first published in Faith & Family magazine in spring of 2007. “I received so many letters in response from women who had the same epiphany of being surprised by this powerful joy, this encounter with Jesus in the person of their special needs child, that I knew I was on to something,” she continued. “I began collecting stories from mothers three years ago, and was delighted to meet many courageous faith-filled women.” Reading former Senator Rick Santorum’s story in The Philadelphia Inquirer about his daughter with special needs inspired Velasquez to ask fathers to contribute to the book as well.
You can read it on their website.
