Rich and Ana send their deepest sympathy for the loss in this life of your beloved Mother and Grandmother, Eleanor, but we rejoice knowing she is safe in the arms of our Lord.

2 Corinthians 5:6-9
Therefore we are always confident and know that as long as we are at home in the body we are away from the Lord. For we live by faith, not by sight. We are confident, I say, and would prefer to be away from the body and at home with the Lord. So we make it our goal to please him, whether we are at home in the body or away from it.
