Reflections for Detective Elise Ann Ybarra

My condolences to the family and friends of Detective Elise Ybarra. Losing a loved one is difficult. Please take comfort in Jesus words found at John 5:28,29 where he said that there would be a resurrection. Just think of the time when you will see your loved one again, in paradise conditions, here on earth. Once again, my condolences.

God, filled with mercy, dwelling in the heavens' heights,
bring proper rest beneath the wings of your Lord,
amid the ranks of the holy and the pure,
illuminating like the brilliance of the skies the soul of Elise Ybarra who went to her eternal place of rest.
May You who are the source of mercy shelter her beneath Your wings eternally,
and bind her soul among the living, that she may rest in peace. And let us say: Amen.
