From http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Precious_Memories:

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.

Aretha Franklin recorded the song for her album "Amazing Grace" (1972) and Ronnie Milsap for his album "Then Sings My Soul" (2009).

Former Teacher at NNHS, Ressie Collins died. Obit in Daily Press.

Deborah Faye Cheek Jackson

   Oh, Faye, I'm so sorry to hear this! Thank you so much for letting me know. It hasn't appeared in the newspaper postings yet, but I think I still would have missed it completely. You have my sincerest condolences.

   From Jimmy Hines ('64) of VA - 02/20/17:

 

Thanks, Santa Jim!

 
 


     From My Husband, Paul Harty (Bardolph HS, IL - '61) of NC - 02/20/17 - "Senior Needs":

Most seniors never get enough exercise. In His wisdom God decreed that seniors become forgetful so they would have to search for their glasses, keys and other things thus doing more walking. And God looked down and saw that it was good.

Then God saw there was another need. In His wisdom He made seniors lose coordination so they would drop things requiring them to bend, reach and stretch. And God looked down and saw that it was good.

Then God considered the function of bladders and decided seniors would have additional calls of nature requiring more trips to the bathroom, thus providing more exercise. God looked down and saw that it was good.

So if you find as you age, you are getting up and down more, remember it’s God’s will. It is all in your best interest even though you mutter under your breath.

Nine Important Facts To Remember As We Grow Older

#9 Death is the number 1 killer in the world.

#8 Life is sexually transmitted.

#7 Good health is merely the slowest possible rate at which one can die.

#6 Men have 2 motivations: hunger and hanky panky, and they can't tell them apart. If you see a gleam in his eyes, make him a sandwich.

#5 Give a person a fish and you feed them for a day. Teach a person to use the Internet and they won't bother you for weeks, months, maybe years - unless you give them your email address.

#4 Health nuts are going to feel stupid someday, lying in the hospital, dying of nothing.

#3 All of us could take a lesson from the weather. It pays no attention to criticism.

#2 In the 60's, people took LSD to make the world weird. Now the world is weird, and people take Prozac to make it normal.

#1 Life is like a jar of jalapeno peppers. What you do today may be a burning issue tomorrow.

Please share this wisdom with others while I go to the bathroom.

     Thanks, Dools!


From My Friend, Crystal, of TX - 02/16/16:
 

  When I was 14 my Sunday School teacher said every week this is how to be happy. Being happy is a side effect of doing these things!

   SO TRUE! Thank you, Crystal!

Precious Memories

- Music and Lyrics by J. B. F. Wright (21 Feb 1877 - ???), 1925


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.
