May Choirs of Angels Welcome You ♥

Saints of God, come to her aid!
Hasten to meet her, angels of the Lord!
Receive her soul and present her to God the Most High.

In your charity, could you please say a prayer for the soul of my Grandma, who passed away at 1am this morning.  She was such a kind and loving woman, blessed with 13 children (including my mother) and many, many, grandchildren and great-grandchildren.  I will miss her so very much!

Eternal rest grant unto her, O Lord,
and let perpetual light shine upon her.
May she rest in peace! Amen.

  2. Jessica, I am sorry. I will pray for your family and for the repose of your grandma's soul. She sounds like she was a lovely person. Would you please pray for the repose of my daddy's soul... he passed away very unexpectedly on July 22. He was relatively young (70) and in excellent health... no underlying medical conditions confirmed by his doctor. Again, you will be in my prayers as you mourn the loss of your beloved grandma. God bless. +JMJ+

  25. My condolences to you and your entire family. Something tells me that your grandmother must have loved Our Lord very much to pass away on a Saturday with to the Sabbatine Privileges.

    And did anyone mention how much your own little Twinkle Toes resembles her great-grandmother? It's really amazing. Your grandmother will live on in so many ways!
