Condolence Card

There's a picture, on the front, of a bird arcing majestically across a very blue sky. A free creature.

I extend my sympathy on the sad loss of your father. However, as his pastor, I feel I must tell you that he was very distressed at your lack of a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. I spent a great deal of time with him in his last days and he brought the subject up often. If you feel that you would like to talk with someone about accepting the Lord as your Savior, please remember I am always available.

shattered sparrow
beneath
a stained-glass window
I bury everything left
of my childhood
