“Who Can Find a Virtuous Woman! For her price is far above rubies. The heart of her husband doth safely trust in her, so that he shall have no need of spoil”


We were very sorry to hear of the passing of your mother, Mrs. Kathleen Huntley, or simply “Mrs. Huntley” as we have heard she liked to be called. Although we did not know her, we have only heard wonderful things about her. She was the wife, mother and God fearing woman that others can only dream of being. From what we have been told of her she was definitely the epitome of a virtuous woman. We know you will miss her dearly, but may the love of your friend, family and most importantly God, surround you and fill your heart as you journey down this new road.

“Favour is deceitful, and beauty is vain, but a woman that feareth the Lord, she shall be praised”

In His Name,

Your Daughter and Son-in-law,
