Words don't have the power we wish they had at times like this, they cannot change those things that have passed, but to not speak them, even when they are powerless would betray our hearts.... our hearts need to be heard!
These events seem to mark a time of harvest for the love that grows silently inside us. All the seeds that friendship plants, that grows in the light of the presence of those we love and admire, brought to blossom, now to be laid upon the memory of those we love, for all to see as a symbol of the value we place on the lives of those who shared our journey and now will be carried in our memory and lifted in our prayers!
God bless you both!

General, it’s with a very heavy heart I have to wish you condolences at Nancy’s passing. While I only met her a few times, Nancy’s smile was infectious. Martha and my thoughts and prayers are with the entire family.

May she be at peace with our Lord.
