'I'll see him again': Wife of Texas church bus driver who died in crash is found dead - Washington Post

Monday, May 01, 2017

First Baptist Church of New Braunfels. Barrett’s husband, retired teacher Murray Barrett, 67, was driving the bus, returning from a three-day retreat in southwestern Texas, when a pickup truck veered into its lane, striking it head-on.On Tuesday, court records revealed that the truck’s driver, Jack Dillon Young, 20, had taken prescription pills — two pills of Clonazepam and the generic forms of the prescription drugs Ambien and Lexapro — and was in possession of marijuana at the time of the crash. A state trooper said in a sworn statement he had probable cause to believe Young was intoxicated.The court records also supported previous witness accounts that Young was texting when he collided with the bus. Calls to 911 and videos captured by witnesses showed that nearly 20 minutes before the crash, Young was driving erratically on the highway, The Washington Post’s Kristine Phillips reported. “He’s all over the road, both sides,” one caller said. “He’s going to hit somebody head-on, or he’s going to kill his own damn self.” [13 dead after truck crashes with church bus carrying senior adults in Texas] Young has not been charged. Local prosecutors have indicated that no charging decision will be made until the investigation is complete, within the next two weeks, the San Antonio Express-News reported.Though Dianne Barrett was not among the bus passengers on the day of the crash, she was an active member of their church — serving as a ministry assistant.“We were deeply saddened to learn of the passing of Dianne Barrett,” the church said in an email to the San Antonio Express-News. “We continue to pray for our Lord’s mercy and comfort for our church family members who continue to grieve.”Dianne and Murray Barrett met at Texas State University and were married for 32 years. Dianne Barrett’s career in the U.S. Air Force took the couple and their four children — Matthew, Jennifer, Russell and Cassandra — all around the country before they settled in New Braunfels 15 years ago, according to an obituary for Murray Barrett. All of the children are now adults in their 20s a

She wanted her ex-husband to die with a happy thought; she told him Trump had been impeached - Washington Post

Monday, May 01, 2017

Elliott died “peacefully,” surrounded by friends and neighbors in his home in a suburb outside of Portland, Ore., according to an obituary published in the Oregonian.Teresa Elliott, who lives in Texas, said she couldn't make it to Oregon in time. So on April 6, one of Michael Elliott's friends called her and told her that he was about to die. The two talked as someone held up the phone to the dying man's ear.Afterward, one of his friends took the phone “and told me that he had completely relaxed and taken his last breath, and he was gone,” Teresa Elliott said. [The case for impeaching President Donald J. Trump. (Too soon?)] In his obituary, the 75-year-old was described as a “Porsche enthusiast” who owned a dozen of the German cars throughout his life. But there's nothing he loved more than golf, the obituary said, becoming a founding member of a golf club in Oregon.His health had declined over the past decade, but it became worse after congestive heart failure was diagnosed a couple of years ago. He had been bedridden the past several months, Teresa Elliott said. The two, who didn't have children, remained close friends after their divorce.Michael Elliott was a longtime Democrat and was very interested in politics; a “CNN junkie,” he was appalled by the current political climate. He found President Trump to be a “loathsome individual,” Teresa Elliott said. Asked what, specifically, her ex-husband had said about Trump, she replied, “Nothing that you could print.” [‘Prediction professor’ lays out eight reasons Trump could be impeached] She said she gave her ex-hu

Richard 'Racehorse' Haynes, colorful Texas lawyer who won high-profile murder cases, dies at 90 - Washington Post

Monday, May 01, 2017

By Matt Schudel, Richard “Racehorse” Haynes, a flamboyant Texas lawyer with a spellbinding courtroom style who won acquittals in several high-profile murder cases and was acclaimed as one of the country’s foremost defense attorneys, died April 28 at his home in Trinity, Tex. He was 90.His death was announced by a family spokesman, lawyer Chris Tritico. The cause was not disclosed.Mr. Haynes was a scrappy onetime boxer with a folksy manner and a dogged, counterpunching style of advocacy. A series of sensational Texas murder trials in the 1970s and 1980s made him a star of the legal world, as he prevailed in seemingly impossible cases.“There’s nobody I couldn’t defend,” he once said.One of his first celebrated trials came when he defended a Houston plastic surgeon, John Hill, who had been charged with killing his high-society wife in 1969. Specifically, he was accused of withholding medical attention after she developed a mysterious illness. (Some people suggested that Hill had injected bacteria into his wife’s dessert pastry.)During the trial,

Baltimore mourns Cardinal Keeler, former archbishop - The Tidings

Tuesday, April 18, 2017

Keeler was a dear friend. The most fitting tribute we can offer is to carry forward his episcopal motto in our daily lives: ‘Do the work of an evangelist.’”Cardinal Keeler was born in San Antonio, Texas March 4, 1931. After growing up and attending Catholic schools in Pennsylvania, he joined the seminary and then attended the Pontifical Gregorian University in Rome. He was ordained there as a priest of the Diocese of Harrisburg in 1955, at the age of 24. During the Second Vatican Council, Fr. Keeler served as secretary to Bishop George R. Leech of Harrisburg. He was appointed Auxiliary Bishop of Harrisburg in 1979, and in 1983 became bishop of the same diocese. In 1989 he was named the 14th Archbishop of Baltimore, the oldest diocese in the United States.Archbishop Keeler was also elected as president of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops in 1992, where he helped coordinate 1993’s World Youth Day celebrations in Denver, Colorado. Archbishop Keeler was appointed a cardinal by St. John Paul II in 1994. He retired in 2007, at the age of 76. Cardinal Keeler was very involved in both interreligious and ecumenical activities, as well as the pro-life movement.At the USCCB, he served as the moderator for Catholic-Jewish relations as well as the Chair for the Bishops’ Committee for Ecumenical and Interreligious Affairs between 1984 and 1987. He served on the International Catholic Orthodox Commission for Theological Dialogue, the Pontifical Council for Promoting Christian Unity, and the Congregation for the Oriental Churches over the years. He also served twice as the Chair of the U.S. Bishops’ Committee on Pro-Life Activities.In Baltimore, Cardinal Keeler worked hard to secure funding for at-risk children and youth to attend Catholic schools in the archdiocese. Today, the fund that bears his name has awarded over 16,500 scholarships and has raised more than $70 million dollars in funding. Other efforts of Cardinal Keeler include his hosting of both Sts. John Paul II and Mother Teresa of Calcutta during their visits to Baltimore, and his efforts to restore the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary.Sean Caine, spokesperson for the Archdiocese of Baltimore, told CNA that “the cardinal served the Archdiocese of Baltimore for 18 years,” a feat which made him third longest -serving bishop in the historic see. “He did so with great distinction, great clarity of vision and fidelity to the Church.” Caine continued to explain the cardinal’s meaning to the city and the deep significance of his leadership over those nearly two decades.“He was probably best known for his work in

He traveled with his brother, Dennis and other buddies all over the western United States enjoying every minute of it. His trips went from the desert southwest of the Texas-Mexico border to the Columbian Ice Fields of the Northern Canadian Rocky Mountains. Along the way, he enjoyed nature’s beauty of our National Parks, such as Big Bend, Yosemite, Yellowstone and Glacier, from Southern California’s Pacific Coast line north to the Red Wood Forest. Danny always loved spending time at the lake and always had a boat. He enjoyed water skiing and could even barefoot ski. Many memories were made with his family at the lake. Danny was good with his hands. He enjoyed working on his cars, pickups and motorcycles, taking things that were older and making them new again with what he had. Danny will be remembered as a good friend to many, a wonder
