Ethel had read the bible many times and officiated and many burials and weddings. Her favorite Bible verse was John 3:16-17
16 For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. 17 For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him.
