Sad news

Posted Monday, December 7, 2009, at 8:44 AM

Many of you have followed Sadie Fowler's columns about her father. I'm sad to report that he passed away over the weekend. We'll have more details on arrangements as they become available.

I'm sure Sadie and her family would appreciate your prayers.

UPDATE: Becky McBee has just informed me that there's an online guest book at kilmerfuneralhome.com at which you can leave messages of condolence. Sadie's father is Daniel Killian.

A Funeral Mass will be celebrated 11 a.m. Eastern time Wednesday, December 9, 2009 at St. Joseph Church, 164 Broadway, Fort Edward, N.Y.

It's never easy to lose a loved one, but it seems especially hard to do so during the holidays.

My heartfelt sympathy goes out to Sadie and her family.

Sadie, I hope you always remember; Your father didn't leave - he simply went home. http://www.kierraharrison.com/Poetry/poe...

May God bless you and hold you in His loving arms during your time of healing.

Thanks John. It is never easy to share the news of this type. From what Sadie has written, Mr. Killian fought a brave battle.
