A candle has been lit!

Ms. Sabogal was like a second mother to me. While I had not seen her in sometime I will always appreciate how she and Nick looked out for myself and my mother. Let nothing disturb you. Let nothing affright you. All things are passing. God does not change. Patience obtains all things. Nothing is wanting to him who possesses God God alone suffices.
