To the family of the deceased Bernard, Brigette,Connie and Monica On creation morning God in His infinite wisdom understood He couldn't physically be everywhere at the same time. Soon thereafter He created woman. Since then mothers have been looking after us. Thursday September 19, 2019 God looked over the balconies of eternity and called your mother home. The sunshine days the open fields, open skies..............but memories are one gift from God that neither time nor space can erase. Though i may never have met your mother i can tell how wonderful she must have been just by knowing Monica and the amazing woman she is. I pray that God give you comfort and guide you along this journey. That spirit of uncertainty, the dread of tomorrow. Father give their weary hearts rest and their perturbed minds sound sleep. Almighty God every waking moment every tear, every fear.... father comfort them when their hearts begin to sink. Send your Guardian Angels of mercy to wipe their tears away. God you know them by name and number look upon my dear friend Monica hold her close to you in the coming days, remember that she is only human father and will stumble from time to time, pick her up and carry her the rest of the way. Let her pillow her head on your promises for you have said in your word that you are close to the broken hearted. AMEN
