Dear Bonnie and Joe, You are in my thoughts and prayers this week as you perform the most holy and sacred task of laying your dear mother to rest. Given how great your mother's faith and devotion to Christ were, I hope the fact that her death took place during the season of Holy Week and Easter facilitates your tears of sadness turning into tears of joy and shouts of victory. Peace, my friends, Jimmie Schwartz
