Bless the LORD oh my soul and all that it within me. It is to You who created the heavens and earth, that we give thanks for the life of MPP Sandy Shaw. Thank You that through her hard work and commitment and by Your grace, she has been a forerunner in causes for good and You have made a way for her to be recognized as a woman of distinction. May Your love be poured out upon her evermore today. Amen.
