Thank you for the beautifully written story on September 24 about Brother Basil Rothweiler (Brother Basil Rothweiler: Celebrating 80 years of ministry). It is nearly impossible to capture in writing 97 years of his spirit and profound impact on people and Catholic education, but your story weaves together Br. Basil’s accomplishments in a compelling manner. Sadly, Br. Basil died early on November 8. We give thanks for God’s gift of Br. Basil and the time and love he shared with our school and the Lasallian mission. Rest in peace, dear Brother.

Editor’s note: A funeral Mass for Brother Basil was celebrated Nov. 18 at Holy Spirit in St. Paul.
