(back) In Memory of Rev. Oscar J. LaPlante, S.J. Born: November 22, 1896 Entered: August 12, 1917 Died: May 4, 1980 The souls of the just are in the hands of God, No torment shall touch them. In the eyes of the unwise they did appear to die, But they are in peace. If they experienced punishment as men see it, Their hope was rich in immortality. Slight was their affliction Great will their blessings be. (Wis. 3/)
