A year has gone by so quickly...

Today is the 1st anniversary of passing of my dear sister-in-law, Roya.
I would like to share part of a prayer by Abdu’l-Bahá on this occasion.
... Bestow upon Thy heavenly handmaiden, O God, the holy fragrances born of the spirit of Thy forgiveness. Cause her to dwell in a blissful abode, heal her griefs with the balm of Thy reunion, and, in accordance with Thy will, grant her admission to Thy holy Paradise. Let the angels of Thy loving-kindness descend successively upon her, and shelter her beneath Thy blessed Tree.
 Thou art, verily, the Ever-Forgiving, the Most Generous, the All-Bountiful.
