  1. A Prayer

    Gracious God–Nothing in death or life, in the world as it is or the world as it shall be, nothing in all creation can separate us from your love.

    We commend Hattie into your loving care. Enfold her in the arms of your mercy.

    Bless her in her dying and in her rising again in you.

    Bless Osie, Robert, Robby, Jeffery, all her relatives, and those whose hearts are filled with sadness, that they too may know the hope of resurrection. For the sake and honor of our Savior Jesus Christ. Amen.
