 Blessed Father, I pray for the souls of our loved ones taken too soon. I pray that justice will be served as you see fit. I pray that those mourning souls left behind to grieve their loved ones be lifted up and carried by you through their pain. Give them STRENGTH to face another day, HOPE that their loved one is comforted in eternal Paradise and HEALING so that they will remember with love and joy in their hearts and minds. Continue to hold our loved ones in your Grace, comfort them and protect them. We know you gave your only begotten son so that he may suffer for our sins and give everlasting life in Heaven. For this Jesus, we thank you! Please bless every person who reads this and is touched, every person who writes and is moved and every person whose life is affected by the taking of one life by another. In your name I pray, AMEN!
