I’m so sorry to hear of Jerry’s passing! Your Aunt Ruby told me he was not well. May songs of the angels welcome him and guide him along his way. May smiles of the martyrs greet his own as darkness turns into day. Every fear will be undone, and death will be no more, as songs of the angels bring him home before the face of God.

I am so sorry to hear about your dad. It is never easy to see those we love earn their angel wings and go on before us. Find comfort in knowing he is among many angels, and is now able to say the purest prayers over you and all your family, prayers only angels know how to pray! Peace be with you and your family.
