Our heartfelt sympathy and most sincere condolences. Praying for the blessed repose of her soul, and also for her family. My Anne be welcomed by our Lord to an eternal life of joy and peace. Her death is a blanket of sadness for us. Yet in the midst of that God's comfort and strength and even gratitude are very present. Alongside the sadness is the embrace of love we had for Anne and she for us. Te grieving is not one of despair but ut of love remembered, not lost. It is a time of tears, but yet the budding flower of hope in Him who gave us life.
