Ripple Effect

A very active member of our parish, Ann Churchill, died on April 11; her funeral was last Saturday.

I was amazed at the response to her relatively sudden death–all the people Ann helped in one way or another over the years. Not just family and friends, but parishioners and old people and neighbors and community group members. The range of response was extraordinary for a seemingly modest 77-year-old former nurse.

Ann’s example shows among other things the powerful effect of a generous and creative Christian soul. May Ann rest in peace–and may we follow her fine example! —J. Douglas Ousley

    She carried herself in a quietly dignified manner like Queen Elizabeth. May she rest in peace indeed.

    She was very proactive and friendly towards me, a new parishioner. I was very surprised she had passed. Although I only met her a few times, she made a profound impression, may she RIP.
