"Those whom we love and lose are no longer where they were before. They are now wherever we are."- St. John Chrysostom.

Thank you for visiting In Memoriam. Here you can rekindle memories of that special sister who touched your life and share your story, if you like.

We understand that our sisters who have gone before us to join the communion of saints beyond the grave mean as much to those whose lives they touched as they do to us.

We are honored to share with you the special bond that exists through the bittersweet experience of loss—that combination of grief and the joy of having known and been a part of the life of this sister, this Friend of God.

May you find solace here. Please reach out to us if we can be of help.
