I'm so sorry for your loss.

May her Memory be Eternal.

May the Lord have mercy on her soul, and grant peace to those who love and miss her.

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.
—St. Isaac of Syria

May the Lord have Mercy on the soul of His servant Brenda and grant her eternal rest. May the Lord comfort Paisius and all her loved ones and give them His Peace. Amen.
To God be the Glory in all things! Amen!

Only pray for me, that God would give me both inward and outward strength, that I may not only speak, but truly will; and that I may not merely be called a Christian, but really be found to be one. St.Ignatius of Antioch.Epistle to the Romans.

The memory of God should be treasured in our hearts like the precious pearl mentioned in the Holy Gospel. Our life's goal should be to nurture and contemplate God always within, and never let it depart, for this steadfastness will drive demons away from us. - Paraphrased from St. Philotheus of Sinai

May God have mercy on His handmaid Brenda and make her memory to be eternal, by the prayers of His most pure Mother and all the saints.
