Condolences for Francis J. Cornely

Susan VillanovaWednesday, April 21st

I always thought of Father as an Uncle. He loved God and his calling was paramount and most admirable. He was smart, business savvy, full of wit - always had a funny joke to share, kind and patient, had the gift of gab and thoroughly enjoyed watching and playing sports. I remember him and my dad rooting for and watching lots of Philly sports games and PGA golf tournaments on TV during many family gatherings. I know Grandpop enjoyed him as a dear friend, golf partner and spiritual confidant. Aunt Irene, you had such a special bond with him - initially he was a ‘tough boss’ and then you became beloved friends. You shared the calling to serve God, loved your families, friends, travel and so many life adventures.

I know we all had special moments and conversations with Father over these past 36 years. He shared many kind words of healing while I experienced tremendous grief and despair. His understanding, visions and thoughts about heaven were a great comfort to me and Ive never forgotten them.

Rest in peace Father - heaven is rejoicing in your presence. Until we meet again, May God hold you in the palm of his Hand.

Irene LakatoshWednesday, April 21st

My niece, Susan (Magee) Villanova in her condolence said it so well- Father was dedicated to his Priestly Vocation!
Father always shared his wisdom and understanding with the Lakatosh, Magee, and Lukes families. One thing that was outstanding was his Irish humor. He always had a joke to share with us. We will dearly miss Father! I feel Father would want for us what is said in the Irish Prayer:

May the strength of God...pilot us
The wisdom of God...instruct us
The hand of God... protect us
The Word of God...direct us
