Tuesday evening after our Council meeting, I found a card and a little gift-wrapped box in my mailbox at the church. This was in the box:
In the card was a beautiful, hand-written note from a dear parishioner expressing her sympathy to me and reminding me that my good friend and brother, Al, left this world to join Jesus in heaven. To say that I was touched by this would be an understatement. More like overwhelmed with deep gratitude for this sister in Christ and her very thoughtful and loving gesture. I will cherish both the card and the ornament with my dear friend's picture in it for as long as I live!
