Her favorite Bible passage is Isaiah 40:31

But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.

We rejoice at the life and example she lived and to know we shall see her again one day.
