We will grieve  my sweet mother in law’s absence in our life though we know she is in perfect peace with our Lord. She was my role model of a godly working woman and servant of Christ : a wonderful mother,  grandmother, and doting  wife.  She was a true Proverbs 31 woman who has received her crown and has heard our Lord  say, “Well done, my good and faithful servant.”
