The PROVERBS 31 Woman
She lived her life for Jesus Christ!
On February 1, 2012, after a long battle with leukemia, Kym Calco went home to be with her Lord.
DTBL! lost a beloved friend, counselor and DTBL! Adviser. My personal loss is profound!
It was 2001, when I first met Kym. She was part of the CVCA staff who went to Israel (2002) with DTBL!. Lauren, her daughter, joined her. She longed to go back “some day” and her dream was to return – and to take her other two daughters to the Land.
Everyone who met Kym admired her servant attitude, modesty, quiet manner, wise counsel, understanding, teaching skills, and always her abiding kindness and friendship.
As for me, I constantly teased her saying, “When I grow up, I want to be exactly like you!” Embarrassed, she would giggle.
May 2012, she posthumously received her doctorate from Olivet College.
We praise God, “for every remembrance” of her! (Phil. 1:3)
Her children arise up, and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praiseth her. Many daughters have done virtuously, but thou excellest them all. Favour is deceitful, and beauty is vain: but a woman that feareth the Lord, she shall be praised. Give her of the fruit of her hands; and let her own works praise her in the gates.
II Cor. 5:6-8
Therefore, being always of good courage, and knowing that while we are at home in the body we are absent from the Lord — for we walk by faith, not by sight–we are of good courage, I say, and prefer rather to be absent from the body and to be at home with the Lord.
John 11:25-26 a
I am the resurrection and the life; he who believes in Me will live even if he dies, and everyone who lives and believes in Me will never die.
For to me, to live is Christ and to die is gain.
To die IN Christ is ALL GAIN!
We thank and praise you, Lord! You blessed this world with a truly beautiful woman!
