"Neither death or life, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the Love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord."
Romans 8:38. May friends and family find peace in knowing that Riva lays in the arms of our creator. Thank you Riva, for the fond memories you have planted in my heart while working in the art department.
Peace, Marie R.
