Eloise “Aunt Ell” as she was lovingly called, will be greatly missed by not only her family but by all the lives she has touched and ministered to. Her absence leaves a void that only God can fill.
“But watch thou in all things, endure afflictions, do the work of an evangelist, make full proof of thy ministry. For I am now ready to be offered, and the time of my departure is at hand. I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith: Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day: and not to me only, but unto all them also that love his appearing.” 2 Timothy 4:5-8
