Condolence Letters

I have just finished writing two condolence letters.  I usually take at least two weeks to gather my thoughts before I put pen to paper but this time round it has taken me a whole month.  No, I didn’t procrastinate.

I have been praying for the right words but I just couldn’t get the right words until Saturday morning.

Both the widows had been married to their husbands for a very very long time. One was a retired clergy from Scotland and a former colleague of the Mhinisteir while the other a retired librarian from our last parish in England.

I hope my feeble words will bring some comfort to these widows.
