It would have been wonderful to have known her up close and personal so I could make a eulogy befitting of her.
Yet I have only heard of her. I haven't read her books and I realized today I need to read her books. I need to be inspired and be reminded all over again of what it truly means to be a woman of worth, a woman of value.
"The memory of the righteous will be a blessing, but the name of the wicked will rot." - Proverbs 10:7
Hers is a legacy beyond what the world can offer. And I would surely love to remember her and see, through her books, what it would have been like if I've known her.
