RIP Franklin Cover
This American actor who became semi-famous in the 1970s for playing a white man in an interracial marriage on the television comedy ‘The Jeffersons’ was in real life an Anglo-Catholic, a member of the Church of the Resurrection in New York, that Episcopal diocese’s last remaining Missal parish. He died on 5th February, aged 77, and a Requiem was sung there.
His son Bradford remembered his father very often leaving church after High Mass on Sundays in the early 1970s, and as they walked towards Lexington Avenue, his father crying out, “Bradford, I have a thirst for righteousness!” with a great smile. May his soul, and the souls of all the faithful departed, through the mercy of God rest in peace.
