She prayed earnestly that her life might be spared, and desired the brethren, when a special fast was called for the family, to pray specially for her that she might live, to comfort her mother, and help raise her brothers and sisters. She had great faith in the Priesthood, the Elders remaining by her side for several days administering, and for her comfort, but she was called to finish her mission in the spirit world she had so nobly begun on earth. She was always willing and ready to do every thing required of her, and so bright and cheerful about it, that it was a pleasure to see her, indeed she was a choice spirit sent to elevate and refine all those with whom she associated. From time to time she was promoted to higher callings she never forsook the primary, but always Attended, assisted in singing, making programmes etc. bringing rays,of sunshine with her presence.
