    Proverbs 31 vs 10-31 NLT
    This bible passage of ‘the virtuous wife’ exemplifies the life and character of your daughter, wife, mother, sister, grandmother, cousin, in law and dear friend – Golda King.

    We should all have the purpose in life to live like her, with strength, dignity.and Love of the Lord.

    Verse 30 states:
    Charm is deceptive and beauty idoes not last,
    But a woman who fears the Lord will be greatly praised.
    Reward her for all she has done,
    Let her deeds publicly declare her praise.

    May she rest in peace and rise in glory!
    Sincerest condolences to All.
