She leaves a husband and five children, who woth a host of friends are left to sorrow, but not without hope. Dear father and children, follow mother's advice, heed her prayers and precepts and you will be gahtered with her in glory. Eighteen months she suffered before death came to her rescue. Yet, "she is not dead but sleepeth." Jesus will wake the body  and join it with the soul in resurrection.
