Mr. Ronald Carbon's wife requested that black vestments be used at her husband's funeral memorial Mass. He died of melanoma cancer and black is the official color of the ribbons that those who have experienced melanoma wear.
We give those who are bereaved three choices for the Funeral Mass, the Requiem, violet, white and black. The choice is theirs as well as the choices for the Scriptures and various music, but from a strict list.
These are pictures from today' Requiem. Ron donated his body to the Georgia Health Sciences University, Medical College of Georgia, soon to be Georgia Regents University,in Augusta for med students to practice.
