The Reverend Raymond Schulze, an iconic figure from my childhood, died recently. This man, who from a child’s perspective had the statue and voice of Abraham Lincoln, confirmed me in New Haven.

uCustom ‘Yessence Cards’ are created in a spirit of surprise and mystery. Unique connections spur us into new ideas. It is not ‘Nonsense’ to our brains, but ‘Yessence,’ saying a holy YES to the ESSENCE embodied in the unexplainable.
