Rest In Peace, Mary

My stepmother Mary has died from natural causes after a very long life. I will be representing my siblings at her service tomorrow in Illinois. Her nephew says that Mary was ready to "go home" to the ones she loved and missed. It will be a somber moment in the midst of joy as we celebrate what was and what will be. Rest in peace, Mary.

Oh boy, I hate to hear things like that. I have no doubt that you'll be a fine representative. All of my best in a difficult situation.

I'm sorry Birdie. Your strength is in your faith...as always.

May God bring Mary into His Eternal Rest and grant comfort to you and all her knew her through her long life.
