Mrs. Lorraine Trouve, RIP

I just found out that my mother died somewhat unexpectedly. Needless to say, I won't be blogging for some days.
She was a wonderful person and very devout Catholic, who went to daily Mass for at least 20 years.
This morning at Mass a line from the preface of the Ascension jumped out at me, "The Lord Jesus, the conqueror of sin and death...."
Jesus has conquered death. He's conquered sin. It never seems so real as when a loved one dies. As I grieve for her I can still rejoice that she's with the Lord.

Sister, I am so sorry to hear that you have lost your mother. May her soul and all the souls of the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace. Amen. I send my prayers for the repose of her soul and that you will feel assured of the Lord's comfort in your time of mourning.

Sister Lorraine,

I am sorry to hear of your mother's unexpected death. I am going to go right to bed now and pray for her, and you, and the family at this time. May Jesus Master, Way, Truth and Life welcome Lorraine Trouve into His kingdom. May you be consoled by the Holy Spirit at her loss.

Sister, My heart aches for you in the loss of your dear mother. I remember the terrible feeling of loss when my own mom died...I was a forty-year-old wife and mother, but I truly felt like an orphan. You and your family are in my prayers.

Dear Sister,
I will remember your mom in my daily prayers. I am so sorry.. she must have been a lovely woman because the fruit of her life is found in who she left behind. May our Blessed Mother in heaven comfort you in your loss and may our Saviour welcome your mother with open arms.
