R.I.P. 2016

As 2016 comes to a close (and none too soon for my liking), let’s look back and remember the people in the public eye who said farewell.  As we do, we also remember those who were near and dear to US, personally.

The departed whom we now remember have entered into the peace of life eternal.  They still live on Earth in the acts of goodness they performed and in the hearts of those who cherish their memory.  May the beauty of their life abide among us as a loving benediction.
