Opening Introduction by Dr. Samuel Wells: (38:15)
"When Mary Duke Biddle Trent Semans was born, Duke University was no more than a twinkle in her great uncle's eye, but Mary's been a twinkle in the eye of this university ever since. And not just this university but this city, this state and far beyond. And we have gathered together today because she put a twinkle in our eye too. We have come together to hand her over to God, that she might be a twinkle in God's eye forever..."
