Conrad & Family,
My deepest condolences on the passing of your mother.

~ David Spriggs, NNHS 1964

Dear Cousin Conrad,
My heartfelt sympathy to all of you as we celebrate the life and "home-going" of your Mother & my Aunt Ila, whom I loved and will miss.

Aunt Ila was a unique individual, who always stood firm in her faith, and wanted everyone to embrace the power of the Christian experience that changed her life so dramatically.

May the peace of our Loving, Heavenly Father bring you peace and comfort in your time of loss and grief.

Mere words can not begin to express the emotions of losing a Mother (I still miss mine every day), but we can rejoice in knowing that God has made provision for us to see our Loved Ones again if we live for Him.

You, her grandchildren, and extended family will be in my thoughts and prayers in your time of bereavement.

Love, Your Cousin,
Linda Rorrer-Wilson

Be Thou My Vision

Irish Hymn, c. 8th century

Translated by Mary Elizabeth Byrne (02 July 1880 - 19 Jan 1931), 1905

Versified by Eleanor Henrietta Hull (15 Jan 1860 - 13 Jan 1935), 1912

Be Thou my Vision, O Lord of my heart;
Naught be all else to me, save that Thou art.
Thou my best Thought, by day or by night,
Waking or sleeping, Thy presence my light.

Be Thou my Wisdom, and Thou my true Word;
I ever with Thee and Thou with me, Lord;
Thou my great Father, I Thy true son;
Thou in me dwelling, and I with Thee one.

Be Thou my battle Shield, Sword for the fight;
Be Thou my Dignity, Thou my Delight;
Thou my soulís Shelter, Thou my high Tower:
Raise Thou me heavenward, O Power of my power.

Riches I heed not, nor manís empty praise,
Thou mine Inheritance, now and always:
Thou and Thou only, first in my heart,
High King of Heaven, my Treasure Thou art.

High King of Heaven, my victory won,
May I reach Heavenís joys, O bright Heavenís Sun!
Heart of my own heart, whatever befall,
Still be my Vision, O Ruler of all.
