I loved this dear lady and knew her a long time while at Tabernacle. A comfort in knowing she is with her Savior and husband and many others. She was truly an inspiration, and Christian lady.
She prayed for me! May God bless this family!

My deepest sympathy to your family. Psalms 90:10 says that the days of our years are 70 years and because of special mightiness they are 80 years. Very Special indeed!
