Family prayer: "Dearest Father God, Please bless this food and bless this family. Thank you for each one of us at this table and especially for the one who is missing. We know you are loving him and enjoying his company as much as we did. Amen."
Family dinners will never be the same with the vacant chair at the head of the table.
