Mr. Bruce, Andrea & Robby,
I am so sorry for your loss. Mrs. Bruce was such a neat lady. My memories of her always include some sort of chuckle; she had a wonderful laugh. And she had such a way with words; I always enjoyed the little phrases she used to describe an event or person.
I don't remember the last time I visited with Mrs. Bruce although whenever we visted Mom & Dad's, we would wave as we passed Mr. or Mrs. Bruce outside in their yard; and they would wave back, always smiling. It was a good feeling having Mr. & Mrs. Bruce as neighbors for as long as my parents have lived in their house.
We were praying for Mrs. Bruce; and we ask Eternal Rest, Grant Unto her, O Lord, and Let Perpetual Light shine upon her.
We hold each of you and your families in our prayers as you grieve the loss of someone so special.
I share with you the prayers that have been offered by my prayer group:
O God, the Creator and Redeemer of all the faithful; grant unto the soul
of Thy servant, EILEEN, the remission of all her sins; that through devout
supplications she may obtain the pardon she has always desired.
Who with the Father in the unity of the Holy Spirit, livest and reignest God, world without end. Amen.
God of all consolation, in Your unending love and mercy for us,
You turn the darkness of death into the dawn of new life.
Show compassion to ROBERT,
and their FAMILY who mourn her sudden passing.
Be their refuge and their strength to lift them from the darkness
of this grief to peace and joy in Your presence.
We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen.
