CANDLES OF JOYS AND CONCERNS
While celebrating with her family in Vermont Rosalie Kerr had a fall that resulted in her breaking two vertebrae and her sternum. She is at Dartmouth Hitchcock hospital where they surgically repaired the sternum yesterday. Now that is complete they will focus on her spine. This candle is a request for our congregation’s sweet, healing thoughts for Rosalie’s comfort and healing. Actual cards can be send to Rosi Kerr: 41 Old Moses Farm Rd

After retiring from Belmont, Thelma became a full time activist for underserved communities in Boston. The extent of her contributions was lauded by Ayana Presley and Michelle Wu who spoke at the funeral.
