Psalm 90:10 says that the days of our years are 70 years, And if because of special mightiness they are 80 years.
May the memories of the wonderful times you shared together bring a smile and joy in your heart.

Consecration of the Family to the Sacred Heart

We consecrate to Thee, O Jesus of love, the trials and the joys and all the happiness of our family life, and we beseech Thee to pour out Thy best
blessings on all its members, absent and present, living and dead --- and when, one after another, we shall have fallen asleep in Thy blessed
bosom, O Jesus, may all of us in Paradise find again our family united in Thy Most Sacred Heart. Amen.
