It was a privilege to sing in the choir with Juan and my sweet friend Clare. They were a devoted couple and I loved seeing them together. Our choir sang at their wedding and saw the joy they shared. We pray for Clare and Juan’s extended family and are assured that all will meet again in Paradise. God Bless.
