What an honor and privilege to have met and known Bits. She was a mentor and a true inspiration to me at a time in my life when I was just starting to study God's word. Her lively spirit and faithfulness was an encouragement to me and I have thought of her often throughout the years. She leaves behind a wonderful legacy. It blesses me to think of her at the banquet feast with Jesus. God bless you all and may you be comforted with the fondest memories of a life well lived. Love and blessings,
