Dear Eugene,

1 Corinthians

Love is patient, love is kind.
It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.
It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered,
it keeps no record of wrongs.

Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth.
It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always persevers.
Love never fails.

I am sorry for your loss and I am sorry that I have lost a sister. I stopped by your house last Sunday, now I know why no-one was home.

Eugene and family:

Anne was my first cousin and, although my family and I lived in MA, we visited when we were younger in Honey Brook and Wagontown. My wife and I send our sympathies to you and the rest of the family.
