Servant of God, you were faithful in the use of your talents. You provided comfort to my father before and after his debilitating stroke that took his mobility. Your music relaxed hi to sleep and during the day he listened and sang along. Thank you, and now take your rest in the loving and caring arms of our Father in Heaven.
