Dear friends and fellow Christian writers,
Thanks to all of you who have sent e-mails, cards, and/or flowers to us and also contributions to Gilchrist Hospice or elsewhere.
Your faithfulness as a Christian includes such outpouring of comfort to those in mourning. We rejoice, also, for we remember that "to be absent in the body is to be present with the Lord," as Mary Helen's health aide reminded us on a recent personal visit.
May each of you, whatever you are going through, also know that our prayers are with you, too, for your mission and calling from God, as His child.
Jean Purcell, editor
