I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help.
My help cometh from the Lord, which made heaven and earth.He will not suffer thy foot to be moved: he that keepeth thee will not slumber.Behold, he that keepeth Israel shall neither slumber nor sleep.The Lord is thy keeper: the Lord is thy shade upon thy right hand.The sun shall not smite thee by day, nor the moon by night.The Lord shall preserve thee from all evil: he shall preserve thy soul.The Lord shall preserve thy going out and thy coming in from this time forth, and even for evermore.. We join with all of you in celebrating the life and legacy of our friend Vernita. To Pat and family may God hold you on this day and the days that comes. TJ Williams-Hauger and husband Brad First gay couple of The Riverside Church

To the family of Vernita Gray, please accept my sincere condolences for the loss of your dearest loved one. I have found comfort in the scriptue at Psalm 72:12-14.

I knew Vernita from the very beginning of the Gay Pride movement and every moment of those years was filled with veritable pride and activism on Vernita's part. Moreover, she was a deep-feeling and loving person and friend. She was helpful and kind to those she knew and to strangers, as well. She touched us all deep within our hearts. I will miss her spirit and her loving-kindness. May G-d rest her soul. From, Harriet Baker

I didn't know Vernita but I followed the marriage equality fight in Illinois and was glad Vernita and Pat were allowed to marry before the "official" date of marriage in June.

I wish Vernita had lived longer to enjoy her marriage, but she must have died knowing she fought the good fight, for Pat and for others. God Speed, Vernita

May the God of all comfort be with the Gray family as they mourn the loss of their loved one. Psalms 20:1 tells us to look to God on the day of distress. Continue to make him your refuge during this most difficult time.
