1 Even though during these last years she was weak and most of the time confined to her room, yet 86 she was a source of constant joy and inspiration to those that met her. The Guardian feels her loss tremendously because the greatest part of his leisure hours he used to spend in her company.
His only comfort is that she has been delivered from the worries and weaknesses of a body that could no more withhold her spirit and help her to express all her desire in meeting the friends and serving them.
At present, in the presence of her Father and Lord we trust she is remembering us and asking for us His divine grace and blessings.
