Everyone who mourns her loss is invited to celebrate her life by sharing a coffee and this prayer with loved ones on a sunny spring morning:
Don’t let your hearts be troubled. Trust in God, and trust also in me.
There is more than enough room in my Father’s home.
If this were not so, would I have told you that I am going to prepare a place for you?
When everything is ready, I will come and get you, so that you will always be with me where I am.
John 14: 1-3
In addition, the family invites those who knew her well to join them for the funeral mass which will be celebrated at Holy Family Parish – 1451 Strachan Rd SE on Tuesday, April 12th at 1:00pm with Father Rodel Abanto celebrant.
In lieu of cut flowers, the family encourages you to grow them instead and to think of Anne as they unfold and share their beauty and enhance your life just as she did for so many throughout her many years.
