Leil Murray, 102 years old passed away

Our beloved aunt passed away on February 10, 2019. Leil Murray was 102 years old. She was a friend to everyone she met and a source of strength for all who knew her.

Aunt Leil’s favorite scripture was Proverbs 3: 5: “Trust in the LORD with all thine heart, and lean not unto thine own understanding.”

As a young lady, she asked God for 100 years of life, she trusted God and he granted her 102 years of life. We will never understand God’s decisions, but we thank him for allowing Aunt Leil to live a productive and healthy life.
