Richard & Michelle: Our hearts go out to you in the loss of your mother Richard. May the words of Psalm 116 console you at this time.Return to your rest, O my soul,For the Lord has dealt bountifully with you.For Thou hast rescued my soul from death,My eyes from tears, My feet from stumbling.I shall walk before the Lord in the land of the living. Psalm 116: 7-9
