Endure to the End

That phrase can mean a lot of different things to different people. It might mean endure to the end of the semester, my long run, my trials...... In 2 Nephi 31:20 we're told "...Wherefore, if ye shall press forward, feasting upon the word of Christ, and endure to the end, behold, thus saith the Father: Ye shall have eternal life."
I had the opportunity to visit teach an amazing woman; Sister Edna {L} lived in our ward and was 93 years young!  She was full of life and love and I was so blessed to be her visiting teacher.  In Sept Edna had heart attack and requested that no intervention be done and she was made DNR.  She was not scared of death and joyfully looked forward to being reunited with her husband. She peacefully passed away surrounded by her family.  
Flash forward to this past Sunday when we had tithing settlement.  Our Bishop shared with us that 2 weeks after Sister {L}'s death he received this in the mail:
 Even when though she was in the hospital dying, she still had her daughter mail her tithing. A true example of an individual Enduring to the End
