RIP Truett Cathy - Founder of Chick-Fil-A

Earlier this week, it was reported that Truett Cathy, the founder of Chick-Fil-A, passed away at the age of 93.

I discovered Chick-Fil-A a number of years ago by accident and fell in love with their product.  Each time I go into a Chick-Fil-A, I am always amazed at the following:

  • Cleanliness of the store
  • Quality of the product
  • Friendliness and courtesy shown by the staff
  • How nice everyone is who eats there -- never shouting, foul language, etc. 

Although we are of different faiths, Mr. Cathy upheld a certain moral stance that we as Catholics should look for and, when appropriate, work with groups such as this.  The amount of hate targeting him and his company, was outweighed a million times by those who bought his product. 

And so, I take this moment to say:

Eternal rest, grant unto him O Lord
and let perpetual light shine upon him/her.
May he rest in peace. Amen.
May his soul and the souls of all the faithful departed,
through the mercy of God, rest in peace.
