Sandra and family: The sorrow of the faithful is not that of permanent loss, but the tender sense of sadness that comes in saying good-bye for now to someone you love. May today's sorrow give way to the peace and comfort of God's love. Thinking of you and family at this time of sorrow. Prayers are with you.
