So sorry Margaret to learn of your sister's passing. My thoughts are with you and your parents and your entire family. May the following verses provide you comfort during this difficult time.

What must it be to step on shore and find it—HEAVEN;
To take hold a hand and find it—GOD’S HAND;
To breathe a new air and find it—CELESTIAL AIR;
To feel invigorated, and find it—IMMORTALITY;
To sail from the care and turmoil of earth
To one unbroken calm;
To land there and find it—GLORY.


“Although it is difficult to look beyond the sorrow.
May looking back in memory comfort you tomorrow”.
- Linda Schenk
