My description of my Auntie Muriel;

Bible Verses She Modeled

It is difficult to forget a woman who comes to mind when we read certain Bible verses. The following are from Proverbs 31 which describe “Auntie Muriel”

She is energetic and strong, a hard worker (verse 17).
She is clothed with strength and dignity (verse 25).
When she speaks, her words are wise, and she gives instructions with kindness. (verse 26).
Charm is deceptive, and beauty does not last; but a woman who fears the Lord will be greatly praised. (verse 30).
Rest In Eternal Peace Auntie until we meet again.
🙏🏾🙏🏾Carol Ruddock and Family 🙏🏾🙏🏾

It is with a solemn and heavy heart that i write these words. Your passing has left a huge void in our lives. The good times we shared will never be forgotten. The only consolation is that you are resting in a better place with Roy by your side.
