Terra Lyn Swinney, the 28 year old woman in Greensboro, NC, who died on November 11 when a gust of wind felled a tree which crushed her as she sat in her car with her son.

I only know this much to be true: Our loving God weeps for us even as Terra is welcomed into the loving arms of the Merciful One who is the Lord of Life, and rests now, bathed in Light Eternal.
