Aunt Clarice, 1922-2006

My aunt passed away in Christ early Saturday morning after a life of 83 somewhat difficult years, though I believe her life would appear heroic to those who are discerning enough to value quiet loyalty over outward achievements. I had the privilege of seeing her a couple hours before she died, and will be presiding at the funeral tomorrow. I only wish her only daughter, who lives in North Carolina, had been able to arrive in time before her mother died.

May her memory be eternal.

This, of course, will slow down my already-slow blogging pace of recent days (how can you get slower than "motionless"??)

After a difficult life here, may God establish her soul in a place of light, a place of refreshment, a place of repose, where all the righteous dwell.

Memory eternal.
