    Psalms 91:14-16 KJV
    14 Because he hath set his love upon me, therefore will I deliver him: I will set him on high, because he hath known my name.
    15 He shall call upon me, and I will answer him: I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him, and honour him.
    16 With long life will I satisfy him, and shew him my salvation.

    Liz & Family-
    Thinking of you all this week. Your mama was an incredible woman. I always marveled at her and hope if the good Lord allows me to live anywhere near as long as she did, that I can be half as upright and sturdy as she was. Praying you will all be comforted by your many memories and the amazing legacy she leaves behind. Love, Sharon Smith
