Kathy and John, and ALL of the Armour Family,
Although I knew Cecilia for just a short time, I always looked forward to seeing her at Brevillier on Wednesdays and Sundays. She was a woman of GREAT faith. My lasting memory of her will always be how she looked forward to receiving the Holy Eucharist. Our consolation at this time is to know that she is "safely home."
I am home in heaven, dear ones;
Oh, so happy and so bright!
There is perfect joy and beauty
In this everlasting light.
All the pain and grief is over,
Every restless tossing passed;
I am now at peace forever,
Safely home in heaven at last.
Did you wonder I so calmly
Trod the valley of the shade?
Oh but Jesus' love illumined
Every dark and fearful glade.
And he came himself to meet me
In that way so hard to tread;
And with Jesus' arm to lean on,
Could I have one doubt or dread?
Then you must not grieve so sorely,
For I love you dearly still:
Try to look beyond earth's shadows,
Pray to trust our Father's will.
There is work still waiting for you,
So you must not idly stand;
Do it now, while life remaineth –
You shall rest in Jesus' land.
When that work is all completed,
He will gently call you home:
Oh, the rapture of that meeting,
Oh, the joy to see you home!
Eternal rest grant unto her, O Lord...and let perpetual light shine upon her. May her soul and all the souls of the faithful departed...through the mercy of God, rest in peace. Amen.
God Bless, Prayers, and Love,
