Réquiem ætérnam dona eis, Dómine, et lux perpétua lúceat eis. Requiéscant in pace. Amen.
As theologians, we knew at least vaguely what there is to come after this life. And now, you have found the true, clear answers, Tia Rosie. Thank you for being supportive of me in my studies of Theology and Philosophy, as well as for giving me a good laugh from a Christmas present you sent me, because it included cat socks, and socks that say “Men ruin stuff!” which I thought was hilarious. I think you would’ve appreciated people’s laughter through their tears today.
It was a blessing to have known you, even for such a short time.
Today, although sad, can be seen through a joyful lense, because you have entered into the eternal, loving, joyful embrace of God.
Rest in peace, Tia.
