Her sincere concern was helping others, always being there when ayone needed her.

HER FAVORITE POEM
He walked with me on the hilltop,
He showed me the way to take,
He told me the way would be winding,
But He would make it straight.
He told me how he loved me,
And gave me work to do,
He told me the road would be tangled,
But He promised to see me through.
He told me sometimes the burden
Would seem to hard to bear.
And that sometimes I would be wounded,
But promised He'd be there.
Oh! He walked with me on the hillsides,
And he told me I was His own,
And the sweetest promise He gave me,
"I will never leave you alone."
