    Our condolences and prayers to the Lira family. Our cousin Maria was a joyful and faith filled Christian. She was always a joy to speak with and had a wonderful sense of humor. We appreciated her insights into God and family. It was wonderful that she could receive Jesus in the Eucharist at the hospital and also the sacrament of the sick. We will miss her. May she rest in peace.
