Two days ago, forty-seven-year-old Glenn Greenwood was diagnosed with terminal lung cancer and given six months left to live. While reflecting on his short life and twenty-year army career, Glenn often ponders what exactly Father LaBrie meant when he recently said, a€œIa€™ll administer your last rites tomorrow, Glenn, Saturday, but before I do, I want to take you for a short ride, a short trip. I can also administer the sacrament of confession when you want.a€ A short ride? A short trip? Glenna€™s not sure what thata€™s all about, but when Saturday arrives, and Father LaBrie, as promised, takes Glenn for that short ride in his Ford Explorer on that crisp autumn morning, a destination is reached, and it is there that an event of some three decades past is revisited, an event Glenn buried deep in his mind a long time ago, hoping it would never resurface. Now the incident has resurfaced and it affects his last rites and final confession.Whata#39;s that all about?a€ Kevin asks. a€œBeats me.a€ a€œWell, Father LaBrie probably wants to go over a few things. I know he also likes to drive his Ford Explorer, you know.a€ a€œYeah, thata#39;s what I hear. Anyway, thata#39;ll be tomorrow. Oh, -27- Last Rites.
