“O God of grace and glory, we remember before you this day Haley. We thank you for giving her to us, her family and friends, to know and to love as a companion on our earthly pilgrimage. In your boundless compassion, console us who mourn. Give us faith to see in death the gate of eternal life, so that in quiet confidence we may continue our course on earth, until, by your call, we are reunited with those who have gone before; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.”

A Poem for Haley: “Feeling such loss, Desperately searching through the pain, Void of the energy to try once more, Imagining there could have been another, Finding all that was done, Seeming as if it was nothing, Knowing so much trouble in life, Surprised the grief of death surpasses. I will look for the light of peace. Because I know there was love between us.”
