Sorrowful Parting

Ercira had been struggling with age-related infirmities, but she was strong in body and mind on this, her last Sunday. She spoke movingly of her 30+ years in the life of our suburban parish. She and her late husband Peter worked tirelessly, mostly without acknowledgment, to help the suffering and less fortunate.

She is going to live with her nephew in the greater Sacramento area.  We know that this parting is best for Ercira; nevertheless, I will miss her.
