Ms. Elizabeth “Libby” Martin, I heard so many great things about you and often asked your daughter Libby about you. She said that you have always wanted to meet me. I know from the previous condolences and the way Libby spoke about you that you were one incredible woman. You truly built up Royal Diadems for your crown in Heaven. You will be the Master Baker for the Heavenly Banquet.

Father God, grant eternal rest to your wonderful servant Elizabeth and may the Perpetual Light shine upon her and may she also have eternal peace.
