Father in heaven, thank you so much for us being able to gather here to break bread and fellowship together. We thank you for blessing us with so many friends, especially Jim Shannon, whom we remember today.
We are truly blessed to have known Jim, who always wore a smile and was constantly available to help his friends.
From spending hours translating a complicated German recipe to dedicating several months of his precious time here on earth to pull together the 1969 class reunion, we are grateful to have been blessed with his presence.
We as a group, hold Jim’s spirit up to you in fond remembrance. Jim was one of the founders of the Interboro Breakfast Club, and it is only fitting that we dedicate this breakfast to remember and share how our lives have been blessed by knowing him.
We are sad that Jim is no longer with us, but we are happy as we can rest assured he will always be with us in spirit as he is in Your arms of loving-kindness.
Father, we ask you to bless this food you have provided. Also, please bless Jim’s spirit, his family and his vast number of friends.
LORD, we thank you in the name of your Son Jesus.
And we all say “AMEN.”
