Mrs. Tuey is timeless! I think it was her 101st birthday that I asked her what she wanted and it was a card so she could buy books on her Kindle! Her love for reading kept her mind sharp and her love for others kept her heart strong. I believe it is her love for God and the life He gave her that kept her forever young. Now she is in His Kingdom, with so many who have gone before her and where there is not illness, aging or death... that has all been conquered and no one lived their life in a way that acknowledges our Savior more than Mrs. Tuey. The lives that she influenced to come to know Jesus as their Savior is beyond measure and those of us that were fortunate to be Mrs. Tuey's pastor, for any length of time, remain blessed by her life forever! God bless you Sherri! Your aunt wanted to live life large and you made it happen until the very moment she left this earth!
