CALLED HOME TO REST

In Our Lord God lies our Strength, for who but He can know our weaknesses. In His Omnipotence and Great Wisdom, He has called unto Him our brothers and sisters, that they may finally know peace.

To their earthly-bound family and friends, we share your sadness and despair. We promise you our prayers, strength, love and help in whatever manner it may be needed; Yet we rejoice in their coming unto the Lord, Our Father, Who has Final Jurisdiction over us all.

We pay Honor and Homage to those who have gone before us, in the full knowledge and belief that theirs is now a better existence, and that we shall someday meet in that Sweet By and By.
