Our prayers are with the family. We remember with fondness our time in Poughkeepsie. May was a part of those memories. Leo and I both loved our stay there.

Be assured of God's promise that when we love the Lord and seek His forgiveness, He is Faithful. May loved the Lord, I believe her to be in His presence. May God comfort you all in your grief at her departing.
