  • Kaylee Lodge says:

    The sorrow of the faithful
    is not that of permanent loss,
    but the tender sense of sadness
    that comes in saying good-bye for now
    to someone we love.
    May today’s sorrow give way
    to the peace and
    comfort of God’s love.
    (poem from the internet)

    Love you Kath and Ralph, even though we have our differences, always will as you were a big part of my life.
