Mable Smith Obituary

“May the work I've done speak for me, may the work I’ve done speak for me.  When I'm resting in my grave, and there’s nothing more to be said; may the work I've done speak for me. The work I've done, it seems so small, sometimes it seems like nothing at all; but when I stand before my God, I want to hear him say well done, May the Work I’ve Done Speak for Me.”
