Mourners at the funeral for fallen Chief Warrant Officer Patrick Kordsmeier were told today that Jesus demands faith in return for his promise of eternal life. In a mass at St. Patrick`s Catholic Church in North Little Rock, the Reverend William Define also told the friends, family and military personnel on hand that a death is holy because it is God`s way of bringing his people back to him. The service was conducted in latin and included prayers not heard in that form on a widespread basis since the 1960s. Kordsmeier, who died April 24th during a rocket attack in Iraq, was a member of an Arkansas latin mass community. Many female mourners work black lace veils during the service. A standing-room only crowd filled the small church to pay final respects to Kordsmeier, whose casket was beneath a black shroud decorated with Christian symbols. Define told those present that at death -- quote -- "Life is changed, not taken away." A burial was scheduled to follow at the veterans cemetery in North Little Rock. Kordsmeier was one of five members of the 39th Infantry Brigade killed in the same weekend.
