THE TIE THAT BINDS

We are in different corners of the United States but we have been bound in a vigil of thoughts and prayers. Our aunt, Jim. Juliette and mother's oldest sister, the mother of Frank, Steve and David, was in her last days. Yesterday evening around 5:30, with her sons, hospice and OMM staff by her side, Margaret died. Today fond memories of her 91 years begin to flood us all.

Today is also Steve's 64th birthday. We can say Happy Birthday because he knows his mother is finally pain free.

"The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases, his mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; great is your faithfulness."- Lamentations 3:22-23 (NRSV)
