John, I am so sorry and shocked to hear hear about Kathleen. It was only three months ago that you and Kathleen were so kind to attend the service for my wife. I know the pain you feel. I know our Lord will see you through this and will give Kathleen peace from the awful sickness she suffered with.

Dear Uncle John, Parri & Andy. The three of you knew her best, but many more loved Aunt Kathleen. When I first joined the family, everyone made me feel welcomed, but she always made me feel comfortable. I would always search her out at the family gatherings especially at the beginning when there were so many faces to learn. She simply made others feel good being around her. I loved her. All those many years ago when I watched Robert during his first year of life, she and I talked a couple times a week at least, and there was never a time that I didn't hear her smile, her laugh, or her joyful heart. I'm so very sorry you had to say goodbye. She will surely be missed. In time, may you all be filled with the peace that passes all understanding.

Come, Ye Disconsolate

Words by Thomas Moore; alt. by Thomas Hastings
Music by Samuel Webbe


Come, ye disconsolate, where'er ye languish.
Come to the mercy seat, fervently kneel.
Here bring your wounded hearts, here tell your anguish;
Earth has no sorrow that heaven cannot heal.

Joy of the desolate, light of the straying,
Hope of the penitent, fadeless and pure!
Here speaks the Comforter, tenderly saying,
"Earth has no sorrow that heaven cannot cure."

Here see the bread of life; waters flowing
Forth from the throne of God, pure from above.
Come to the feast of love; come, ever knowing
Earth has no sorrow but heaven can remove.
