It is with great sadness that I inform you that the Hon. Sheila Abdus-Salaam, wife of the Rev. Canon Gregory Jacobs, died suddenly today.

As the media has reported, Sheila's body was found in the Hudson River this afternoon. While the investigation is not yet complete, the police say they have found no signs of foul play.

Please join me in praying for Sheila, for Greg and for their families.
