The following expresses the sincere prayers of her family:
“Dear Lord, relying on your promises to us, we turn to you in trust that our mother is with you and that she is enjoying your loving embrace. You alone know how she loved the best she could and how she faithfully endured the struggles that she faced. You know the graces you gave her and you know the grace she was for us and for so many. For all the ways she truly loved the way you loved her, please reward her, Lord. May she enjoy the communion of all her family and friends who are with you.
Lord, we know our mother still loves us who are still here on earth. I ask you that you might listen to her fervent prayers for us. Help us to grow into a new and deeper relationship with our mother now, as we long for the day when we will both meet in your embrace—freed from all that might have hindered our relationship on earth, knowing and understanding everything we did not know or understand on this earth. Amen”
