She was the one who would initiate family gatherings and for us who attended there are many fond memories. She had a strong faith in her Lord and loved sharing the Gospel. Whatever her circumstances she would share her faith with friends, family caretakers and acquaintances. She was committed to prayer and was part of the church prayer team.
