    Phillp , Sherry and family. I am sorry for your loss.
    Lord… Bless those who mourn, eternal God,
    with the comfort of your love
    that they may face each new day with hope
    and the certainty that nothing can destroy
    the good that has been given.

    May their memories become joyful,
    their days enriched with friendship,
    and their lives encircled by your love.

    – Vienna Cobb Anderson
