Proverbs 31:25-31 25 She is clothed with strength and dignity; she can laugh at the days to come. 26 She speaks with wisdom, and faithful instruction is on her tongue. 27 She watches over the affairs of her household and does not eat the bread of idleness. 28 Her children arise and call her blessed: he husband also, and he praises her: 29 “Many women do noble things, but you surpass them all.” 30 Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting, but a woman who fears the LORD is to be praised. 31 Honor her for all that her hands have done, and let her works bring praise at the city gate.

Visitation will be at Eubanks Funeral Home in Mabank, Texas on Friday from 6-8 p.m.
