"The holiness of the family is the chief way and necessary path to construct a new and better society, and to restore hope for the future to a world oppressed by so many threats."
- Pope St. John Paul II
Our dear Dad and Grandpa, Henry Foxhoven, passed into eternal life on June 8, 2007. He faithfully served God with his life and taught us how to live our faith boldly and without compromise. Dad heroically suffered for the salvation of souls and the Kingdom of God, and still embraced the joy and peace that he found there, beyond the pain. We are grateful for this legacy and example you gave us, Dad. We love you and miss you, and we'll see you soon!
