Prayer of St. Ignatius - Take, Lord, and receive all my liberty, my memory, my understanding and my entire will. You have given me whatever I am or possess. I give it back to you to be entirely subject to your will. Only give me your love and your grace. With these I am rich enough and ask for nothing more. Amen
Nora Lee Lovas Eckert, a loving and courageous wife, mother, grandmother, and teacher, passed away peacefully on February 22, 2018, after battling cancer for the past twelve years.

    I worked with Nora at Tuesday Morning on Jones Creek. We shared many laughs and tears together. I am a cancer survivor also. My prayers go to the family and know that she is in a better place and our tears are tears of joy knowing that. May your family find comfort in knowing that she was loved my others. Susan Curtis
