So sorry to learn of your Frank's passing through the District prayer chain, Lorraine. May you be surrounded by the love of your family and congregation, and know the peace of Christ, who bears our sorrows as well as sins, our great high priest from whose "throne we find the grace to help us in our time of need."
Yours in Christ, Tim
