Women Who Prevail
Jane, a friend of The Anchoress, has also died about a month after being diagnosed with cancer. She left three children aged 21, 16 and 15, who are now arranging her funeral. She too had been left as the head of the family.
Prayers for both these families. A woman's loss is often a desperate tear in the fabric that holds a family together.
She represented the best of MLK's struggle and at the same time, was always identified as a 'hands on' mother that kept her family together- and instilled within them a higher calling.
There is much to learn from this woman who emerged from 'behind' the great man.
