I remember with love and with gratitude, Gabriele C. Whittier, friend and mentor who will be buried this afternoon at Trinity Episcopal Church in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania. For the gift of her and for the blessing that she was to many, I give thanks. And above all, for the amazing gift of Diana and Ross! May she rest in peace and rise in glory.
“Into your hands, O merciful Savior, we commend your
Servant, Gaby, Acknowledge, we humbly beseech you, a sheep of
your own fold, a lamb of your own flock, a sinner of your
own redeeming. Receive her into the arms of your mercy,
into the blessed rest of everlasting peace, and into the
glorious company of the saints in light. Amen.“
