|Precious Memories is a traditional gospel hymn credited to J.B.F. Wright in 1925. J. B. F. Wright was born in Tennessee, February 21, 1877. It has been performed by a wide variety of famous recording artists including Johnny Cash, Emmylou Harris, Daniel O'Donnell, The Edwin Hawkins Singers, and Bob Dylan. It was also the last song on the soundtrack of the 1979 film Hardcore, then performed by Susan Raye at the film's opening and closing credits.|

From Me ('65) of NC - 02/21/16:
My Husband, Paul Harty (Bardolph HS, IL - '61) of NC, was transported from the doctor's office to the hospital by ambulance at 6:30 PM on Thursday to receive emergency IV antibiotics to treat critical stasis dermatitis and celluitis of lower extremities to save his knees from the infection. His condition is complicated by Stage 3 Chronic Renal Failure, mild congestive heart failure, enlarged heart, and a few other delights. He is responding well (if not as quickly as we'd like) to medications. The swelling is going down, and he is experiencing far less pain. Your continued prayers for his recovery will be greatly appreciated.

- Music and Lyrics by J. B. F.
Wright (21 Feb 1877 -
Precious memories, unseen angels
Sent from somewhere to my soul
How they linger, ever near me
And the sacred scenes unfold.
Precious memories, how they linger
How they ever flood my soul
In the stillness of the midnight
Precious, sacred scenes unfold.
Precious father, loving mother
Fly across the lonely years
And old home scenes of my childhood
In fond memory appear.
In the stillness of the midnight
Echoes from the past I hear
Old-time singing, gladness bringing
From that lovely land somewhere.
I remember mother praying
Father, too, on bended knee
Sun is sinking, shadows falling
But their prayers still follow me.
As I travel on life's pathway
Know not what the years may hold
As I ponder, hope grows fonder
Precious memories flood my soul.
