Innocent's Burial























With the saints give rest, O Christ,
 to the soul of Thy servant
where sickness and sorrow are no more,
neither sighing, but life everlasting.

*Thank you, Amanda, for taking the pictures.

  3. Memory eternal, Innocent. I'm searching for words of comfort, but even with the hundreds of miles that separate us I can't stop the tears running down my face. If anything your post gave me comfort. I don't think that's fair, I should have something to say to help you and not the other way around. Your family is in our prayers!
