Dear all,

I join you in expressing my heartfelt condolences to the families of the bereaved ones: Aloyce Menda, Paco de Quita, and Mrs. Ivy Matsepe-Casburri (whose passing away Anne Rachel announced on the list a few days ago).  Just one of them passing away would have been a lot of sorrow and grief to bear, talk less of all three of them.  I join all of you in praying that their souls rest in perfect peace, and that we all have the strength to carry on!
