In Memory of Lee McKinley Davenport

My sweet Lee! My heart is broken my dear friend. Though we never met in person, we enjoyed many telephone conversations. You were my "adopted" son. You gave so much love to all. I will miss you always. I love you. Mama Joan
Lord, please take Lee into your loving arms and grant him peace.

Be at peace ---

Do not fear the changes of life~
rather look to them with full hope as they arise.
God, whose very own you are,
will deliver from out of them.

He has kept you hitherto,
and he will lead you safely through all things;
and when you cannot stand it, God will bury you in his arms.

Do not be afraid of what may happen tomorrow;
the same everlasting Father who cares for you today
will take care of you then and everyday.

He will either shield you from suffering,
or will give you unfailing strength to bear it.

Be at peace --
and put aside all anxious thoughts and imaginations.

--St. Francis deSales
