    Our deepest condolences & prayers to the Missirian, Khatchadourian, Parise, Kordahi, Meyer, Semerciyan, Tchobanian families.

    As the sun comes over the horizon, there is sadness in the air.
    The life of the one you love will be no longer there.
    Though emptiness surrounds you, alas she’s finally free.
    She may have lost the battle, but her soul is there with thee.
    It’s hard to lose a loved one and we may not understand.
    Put your trust in God the Father and he’ll lead you by the hand.
    He’ll lead you through the heartache and dry each tear you cry.
    For God knows the pain of death, when He saw His own Son die.
    Just as he loved His Son, He loves you just the same.
    Sometimes it takes a heartache
    To magnify His name.

    We are very sorry for your loss. We did not know Vergine. We only knew her from stories by Aida Aram Tchobanian.
    Bless you all.
