1. I did not know this precious woman whose passing we are commemorating. But I am given to understand that she went through too much in her life to be anybody’s fool.
2. And I am given to understand that she was simply too strong of personality to be forced into things she did not agree with.
3. In light of what she was like, I urge you to consider the Savior of her soul. Recognize your sinfulness. She did. Recognize your helplessness to save yourself. She did. Respond to the Gospel and trust Jesus to save your eternal soul. She did.
