    No! Not the sweet voice for Kim from Macross, Bulma from Dragon Ball, and Ukyo from Ranma 1/2! I want to at least say a prayer for Tsuru-san’s soul to find peace. Father Almighty, please guide our dearly departed sister Hiromi Tsuru to Your Kingdom of Joy and Peace Everlasting. Release her from the pain of this cruel world of ours and welcome her to Your Divine Kingdom with open arms and reward her with the gift of eternal life for all the lives she touched and for the good deeds she has done during her time she spent with us. We ask this through our Lord Jesus Christ, Your Son, who lives and reigns with you, in the unity of the Holy Spirit. One God, forever and ever. Eternal rest grant unto her soul, O Lord. And may perpetual light shine upon her. May she rest in peace. Amen.
