Our condolences to all the family. You are in our prayers. A poem by Helen Steiner Rice. On the wings of death the SOUL takes FLIGHT, Into a land where there is no night, For those who believe, what our Lord said, Will rise in Glory, though they be dead... So death comes to us just to open the door" To the KINGDOM of GOD, and LIFE evermore.
