HOLLNSTEINER Manon Gropius blossomed like an exceedingly beautiful flower. She passed through life with the purity of an angel. To many she was the essence of happiness and love. To those closest to her Manon epitomized a sunny disposition and a joy of living. A year of grave suffering matured her, so that for her more than most, the following words from the bible are appropriate:" An early death, but full of wisdom ". Manon was mature and thus the Lord, in whom she believed, who was her support and salvation, has taken her into His Kingdom in the year of suffering and maturation. She has not died. She has gone home with her eyes open wide, without suffering and pain, and her lips forming the smile so familiar to all of us, who had the privilege of being with her. She has entered His Realm on the Holy Day of Love and Resurrection. The Divine Conqueror of death and need has taken her into His Kingdom of which it is written: "Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard the things which God has prepared for them that love him". Now as a token of our profoundest bond with Manon Gropius let us pray in Christian Fellowship.
