José's funeral will take place in Grace Cathedral at 11am (Pacific Time).
Dear God, you who cried when you lost a friend,who wept over Jerusalem,who asked friends to stay with you while you struggled with your life,please stay with us now, holding us in your love.Cover our lives with the fragrant oil of your healing,send your Spirit to comfort us in our grief,and fill our emptiness with new things.Gather our scattered lives into a community of love,where loss can be shared and gifts can be given for the easing of mourning.We pray these prayers in confidence,for you are our restoration and the renewal of our hope.Amen.
