Please pray for sister

I discovered today that my youngest sister, Kimberly Bishop Yates, died on Saturday 27 April. Please pray for her to be reborn in the Pure Lands.

If you believe certain words, you believe their hidden arguments. When you believe something is right or wrong, true of false, you believe the assumptions in the words which express the arguments. Such assumptions are often full of holes, but remain most precious to the convinced.

Kirtu, I'm reading this late but we're still within the 49 days. Will dedicate tsog practice to her.
