I did not know this woman, but it seems she believed in the Lord Jesus Christ and there is nothing better than going home to the Lord Jesus and our Heavenly Father in Heaven until the time of His coming, her body is sleeping for a little while, while her spirit resides in the new home, away from the sins of this world, with the Living Light and Water, the faithful and true, praise ye the Lord always for it His is power to save all who come Him, He is willing that none perish and all come to the truth.

Let that therefore abide in you, which ye have heard from the beginning. If that which ye have heard from the beginning shall remain in you, ye also shall continue in the Son, and in the Father. And this is the promise that he hath promised us, even eternal life.
1 John 2:24-25 KJV
