A Friend's Mother
« on: October 24, 2009, 10:15:27 PM »
Mildred, the mother of a close friend, reposed on Thursday after a long and full life of 95 years.  Tough Norwegian stock, she was.

May the memory of the handmaiden of God, Mildred, be eternal!

Memory eternal. What a grand old age!

Lord, have mercy.

May Mildred's Memory be Eternal!
Conquer evil men by your gentle kindness, and make zealous men wonder at your goodness. Put the lover of legality to shame by your compassion. With the afflicted be afflicted in mind. Love all men, but keep distant from all men.

May the faithfully departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace.
You are right. I apologize for having sacked Constantinople. I really need to stop doing that.
