I have never had the pleasure of meeting you but your voice has been a wonderful friend and your books treasured companions these past few years. Like many others, you transformed my life with the practice of Centering Prayer, which was clearly instructed and guided by our local chapter using your resources. I can truly say I feel closer to God than ever before and genuinely and truly happy since immersing myself in Centering Prayer twice a day. As time goes on, it is easier to allow God's grace to flow through me and when I experience the dry spells, you are there with your wise words in books, blogs, and multi media. I know as surely as I am sitting here typing this that you are held in the arms of God, basking in the infinite depths of oneness with Him. You are much loved.
