There is a time and season for all things, a beginning and an ending. The time we share with those we love comes in between. Ending brings a new beginning but the separation can be painful with sorrow and greff. My prayer is that the pain of separation ends quickly for you with the joy of knowing that the new life with theLord has no sickness, no pain no tears and you will see them again. May God bless and keep you in perfect peace.

I am sadder than sad to hear of Pierre's passing. I worked with him for almost 3 years at Ricoh at LSU. I remember Pierre always smiled and was so great to work with. He always made a point to come to the office to say hello to Angelina and me! When LSU switched to another company for their printing and mail delivery, I lost contact with Pierre, and I'm sorry that I didn't get to see him in the last 3 years since then. My condolences go out to his family. He will be greatly missed.
