Many of us have used the L'Oreal products. I guess I am one who never thought of the founder or current owner. Nevertheless, when one loses a loved one, it is a sad loss and it hurts the heart.

May the family remember Liliane for the work she did for the company and for the long-enduring time she spent with you.

May God give you strength to carry on in her absence.

I would like to share this thoughtful thought. Pray to God, the hearer of prayer. This is our privilege, for his name we bear. Open your heart as you would to a friend, trust that on him you can always depend. Pray to God each day. Pray to God, give thanks that we live, asking forgiveness as we do forgive. May we confess to our God whom we trust. He is our maker and knows we are dust. Pray to God each day. Pray to God when troubles appear. He is our father and ever so near. Seek his protection, and look for his aid; he is our confidence; don't be afraid. Pray for God each day.
