    My condolences to each of you.
    Auntie Ruth was a lovely lady with a beautiful smile. I still remember her holding Deanna for the first time, as a baby, at the lake on a beautiful summers day. A fine memory.
    Whenever I am in Hanks Pastries in Port Perry, I remember her love for the meat pies which she often got and were enjoyed back home in Dundas.
    The Homulos and Shaw family are in my thoughts and prayers.

    God is our refuge and strength,
    an ever-present help in trouble.
    Therefore we will not fear, though the earth give way
    and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea,
    though its waters roar and foam
    and the mountains quake with their surging.[c]
    There is a river whose streams make glad the city of God,
    the holy place where the Most High dwells.
    God is within her, she will not fall;
    God will help her at break of day.
    Nations are in uproar, kingdoms fall;
    he lifts his voice, the earth melts.

    The Lord Almighty is with us;
    the God of Jacob is our fortress.
