Eternal rest grant unto you Dear Retta and let perpetual light shine upon you. I'm having several Masses offered for the repose of her soul. May she rest in peace. Amen

I am so very sorry for your loss. The Bible makes this comforting promise: "Jehovah is close to the brokenhearted, he saves those who are crushed in spirit." (Psalm 34:18) It also assures us: "Throw your burden on Jehovah, and he will sustain you." (Psalm 55:22) May these thoughts and your wonderful memories give you a measure of comfort during this difficult time.
