Lenny passed away peacefully in the hospital, after a courageous battle with heart disease.
The following message, was written by his brother Joe. Joe is a pastor at Our Lady of Mt Carmel, in Berlin N.J.
After 18 months of waiting for the "Gift of Life" (a heart and a liver), my brother's heart gave out and he died on Nov. 23rd. Please pray for my brother: LEONARD B. FERRARA, JR.
"Yes, Lord, we do…"
My Mom, sisters and brothers are asking that you inform your parishes regarding organ and tissue donations. The "Gift of Life" program is an extremely important program for all those who need transplants and need this special donation to continue their life.
My Mom, sisters and brother want to setup a "Lenny B. Ferrara, Jr. Scholarship Fund" for OLMC/SAA Elementary School. The obit in the newspaper has a fund for his wife's family… we would like donations to come directly to the Parish Office in care of Lenny (178 W. White Horse Pike, Berlin, NJ 08009) to Rosa McDermott, finance manager and school bookkeeper. This scholarship fund will go to a family who desires a Catholic education and need the funding. Please spread the word…
May the Lord who has begun this great work, bring it to completion… I thank you for all the prayers and thoughts that many of you are sending me and my family!In Jesus' Name,
