Just a tribute to a loved one:

"Place me as a seal upon your heart,

As a seal upon your arm,

For love is as strong as death is,

And exclusive devotion is as unyielding as the grave.

Its flames (love) are a blazing fire,

The flame of Jah. (1 John 4:8)

Surging waters cannot extinguish love,

Nor can rivers wash it away."

Song of Solomon 8:6,7

I and all other Pryor folks loved Honey very much. She was a very lovely person who I have known for many years. I thought she may make it back to Copper Country for that one last visit. the Lord is with her now.
