I heard a voice from heaven, saying unto me, Write, From henceforth blessed are the dead who die in the Lord: even so saith the Spirit; for they rest now from their labors, Amen.
May the cloak of our mighty God be merciful and wrap His arms around the family. Give them strength, stamina, patience and peace during this time of great loss. May the flame of grief be, in time, reduced to a soft glowing ember to be placed in the archive of our hearts forever in memory of our sister. In the name of Christ Jesus, Amen.
