He explained that during her entire life she was a "witness of courage and a witness of quiet yet trusting obedience to God's will.â? This "hope was the fruit of a life of prayer and daily effort to be conformed to Godâ??s willâ?, which allowed her to stand strong in the face of trials. He concluded by expressing the importance of her remaining by one's side, for guidance and prayers.
