The homegoing celebration of Sis. Opal Chavis has called us together today.  There is no death.  An angel form walks over the earth with silent tread, and bears our loved ones away; and then we call them dead.  But, they are ever near us, though unseen.  Their dear immortal spirits tread.  For all the boundless universe is life; there is no death.  The Giver just takes back His loved ones unto Himself, after they have brought such beautiful patterns during their time here on earth.
