The passing of Mr. Clancy

May 5, 2012

Mary Clancy goes up to Father O’Grady’s after his Sunday morning service, and she’s in tears.

“So what’s bothering you, Mary my dear?” asks Farther O’Grady.

“Oh, Father,” she says, “I’ve got terrible news. My husband passed away last night.”

“Oh, Mary, that’s terrible,” says Father O’Grady. “Tell me, did he have any last requests?”

“That he did, Father … ” says Mary.

“What did he ask, Mary?” inquires Father O’Grady.

“He said, ‘Please, Mary, put down that damn gun!’ “
