Mark, Angela, Mathew and myself, Louisa Grigg, would like to express our deepest sympathies to Father Freitas and the family. Father Freitas was our pastor at St. Mary's in Cambridge while the children were at school and before that at St. Joseph's where we were first members before moving to Cambridge. Mark was an usher at St. Mary's and I was in the choir. I hope that the happy memories of your mother and the knowledge that she is now in God's hands will comfort all of you during the coming days especially with Christmas so close.

Tia, thank you for being an instrument of peace and love: for lending an ear when needed and reminding me daily of what it means to live by faith and not by sight...You are so missed by your earthly family and your heavenly family is so lucky to have you by their side. Love your niece Ana and Jack

Lord make me an instrument of your peace,
Where there is hatred let me sow love.
Where there is injury, pardon.
Where there is doubt, faith.
Where there is despair, hope.
Where there is darkness, light.
And where there is sadness, joy.
To be loved as to love
For it is in giving that we receive-
and it's in pardoning that we are pardoned.
And it's in dying that we are born to eternal life.
