pray for the departed?’ An answer is

with prayers and hymns for the departed:
– Carrie Tuggle. ‘Mrs. Tuggle was a
person of unique strengths. She excelled in the areas of education, social
work, and religion.’
– Pierre Laffite, the gentlemanly, rascally pirate of Barataria Bay,
Louisiana. He and his brother Jean are
well-known for their role in the Battle of New Orleans and other acts of
