For my grandmother and her sister
« on: July 14, 2008, 11:55:04 AM »
My great-aunt Doris has died, and my grandmother Naomi (her youngest sister) is taking the news very hard. She's had a history of heart attacks, and we're afraid with how she's worked herself up now she may have another one. At 73, she can't afford another heart attack.

Lord have mercy on your servants.

Lord have mercy and memory eternal.

Lord have mercy on your grandmother, and may He give her serenity and comfort in her time of need.  And may the memory of your great-aunt be eternal!

Eternal be the memory of the Lord's handmaiden.

May He be his handmaiden Naomi's Comfort and Strength.
