Ms. Gloria Jean Mock passed. To Comfort all who mourn. To Console those who mourn in Zion. To give them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; that they may be called threes of righteousness. The planting of the Lord, that He may be glorified. Isaiah 61:3
