In the All Saints Episcopal Church Pasadena columbarium, which my late mother, Jean, championed, she and my stepdad, Dick, rest next door to All Saints’ beloved late associate rector, the Rev. Zelda Kennedy.

Almighty God, whom truly to know is everlasting life: Grant us so perfectly to know your Son Jesus Christ to be the way, the truth, and the life, that we may steadfastly follow his steps in the way that leads to eternal life; through Jesus Christ your Son our Lord, who lives and reigns with you, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.

— Book of Common Prayer
