Special prayers of dedication for Paul Spitzer’s new grandson, Kyle Spitzer. Paul W. Spitzer stands with his arm around daughter Joy’s shoulder; surrounded by his family. Sunday before Thanksgiving, 1983.

Early, on a chilly morning the day after Thanksgiving 1983, I sat rolling newspapers in Laurel Maryland with my father who was visiting from his home in Florida.

As we sat by the car preparing the papers for delivery and talking, he mentioned to me that the Lord had been impressing on his mind and heart verses from 2 Corinthians 4 and 5. I was surprised and thought this was an amazing coincidence, because I had just memorized those chapters from the Bible. The two of us spent quite a bit of time discussing the Scripture passages together.

Later that morning we were shocked and stunned to hear that while my dad was traveling north on US 1, a car coming south lost control, swerved and hit him head-on. My father, 47 years-old, was dead at the scene and the young man that hit him died shortly afterwards.

Father David Harvey’s Rites of Anointing Book. The text in red, above the scripture from Corinthians reads “For the dying”

Over the course of those days, I replayed my father’s last day in my head - reflecting on our special time together. Sharing with my friend, Daniel Nichols, I mentioned that my dad and I had discussed 2 Corinthians 4 and 5 that fateful morning. A chill ran up my spine when Daniel said, “Ben, those are some of the verses that priests use during Last Rites – when someone is preparing to die.”
