We used to have lots of religious sisters in my area especially in teaching and nursing.  Many of the places they helped establish still exist in some form and although the places are now run entirely by regular staff some reminders still remain.  I remember visiting a grandparent in a hosptial and another in a personal care home  where there was actually the occasional crucifix as well as photos of the history of the place including the founding sisters.  Seeing such things in places I didnt expect always serves as a wonderful remind of God and your post brought back those memories. :)  Your residents are blessed to be attended by you and your community and I think seeing each of you in your habits is a wonderful reminder of God for them.

Awww.  Eternal rest grant unto her O Lord and let perpetual light shine upon her.  May she rest in peace!

It may sound strange but I actually enjoy reading the obituaries (or in this case fond memories) of religious who have gone on to their eternal reward.  It is very edifying to me and a tremendous witness.
