Separation – When We Are Absent From A Loved One Who Is Sick

Dear friends,

If you are away from a loved one who is sick, may you take comfort in these quotes and verses. I have found it comforting to create a vigil space at home. It has brought me much comfort to light a candle each day as a pray.
