"Rest in Peace," how much this says,
Be free of pain no more to weep.
Find joy that never ends
New Life that here you could not keep
"Rest in Peace" and though we grieve,
Reaching for you hand in vain,
Our faith is such that we believe
That all of us shall MEET AGAIN/

Dear Bruce & Family

sorry for you loss ....Christina was a beautiful person. May she rest in peace.
