The owners of my antique mall,
really lovely people who I consider to be friends,
have had a family tragedy hit this week,
and I would be grateful if you could keep them in your prayers.
Life can be shockingly, alarmingly short...
Please don't take it for granted.
Eternal rest grant unto them, O Lord.
And let perpetual light shine upon them.
May their soul, and the souls of all the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace.
