For the past thirty-plus years,

her Bible from cover to cover
each year. One of
her favorite passages and how
best describes
how she lived her life is
found in
Philippians 4:8-9 (kjv):
“Finally, brethren,
whatsoever things are true,
whatsoever things are
noble, whatsoever things
are just, whatsoever things
are pure, whatsoever things
are lovely, whatsoever
things are of good report,
if there be any virtue
and if there be any praise,
think on these things.
Those things which ye have
learned, and received,
and heard, and saw in me,
do: and the God of peace
shall be with you.
