Dear Poturalski family,
With our deepest sympathy we offer our prayer to the family.

Eternal Father, God, we praise You for the great company of all those who have finished their course in faith and now rest from their labor. We praise You for those dear to us whom we name in our hearts before You. Especially we praise You for Christine R. Poturalski, whom You have graciously received into Your perfect presence. To all of these, grant Your peace. Bring us at last with them into the joy of Your home eternal in the heavens; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen
