Karen Fulcher

Karen Fulcher, the wife of Father Titus Fulcher, my priest - as well as a fellow blogger and Blogland reader - left this Earth this morning following a struggle with brain cancer.

When she was first diagnosed with cancer several months ago, early treatments had seemed promising. For a while, she had seemed more clear and focused than in any time I had known her, just in time for them to celebrate their 20th wedding anniversary earlier this year.

Considering the degree to which the cancer had progressed when they had found it, even having the last few months together was a small miracle in itself.

Please keep Father Titus and their daughter in your prayers. If you'd like to share some words, you can go visit his blog directly.

For those who wish to pay their respects in person, funeral services will be Tuesday at Our Lady of Mercy on America Street in downtown Charleston, beginning at 11am. Visitation is at 10am. Burial will follow at St. Lawrence Cemetery at 60 Huguenin Avenue, Charleston, SC 29403.

    Earl,
    I've met your priest on a couple of occasions at our breakfast club, and observed him to seemingly be an humble person. I thank you for introducing this gentlemen to our club and will pray for him this moment.
