Posted: 01/25/2020 - by Charlie Narmi
The St. Albert family is sorry to see the passing of, Louis Eckrich. Louis was an Army veteran and he was a proud St. Albert Dad for many decades. He and wife, Willy, had children graduate from SA from 1973 to 1994 all the while making the sacrifice to drive from the Neola area! Please keep Willy and the entire family in your prayers this weekend and upcoming week and please join now in praying for the repose of Louis' soul...
Eternal rest grant unto, Louis O Lord: And let perpetual light shine upon him.
May Louis rest in peace. Amen
May Louis' soul and the souls of all the faithfully departed through the mercy of God our Father rest in peace. Amen
