Dear Friends and Schoolmates,   

   Sad news continues to arrive.   

  From Cheryl May Howard ('66) of VA - 03/22/07 - "death notice":

I spend a lot of time at the Waterfields...she was a sweet and gentle woman. They bought our old home on Sycamore Avenue so I got to spend time in the house I grew up in..
Her daughter,   Linda (Waterfield Kenney - of VA), graduated NNHS class of 1966. Mr. Waterfield was a well know duck carver and his artwork has become famous.

   Thank you for telling us, Cheryl.  I'm so very sorry to hear this.

To Linda and all your family: I am so sorry to read about the death of your mother. I did not see your mother often; however, on a rare occasion, she came in Manning's Grocery Store, where I worked in high school. She was a kind and beautiful lady. (I recall that you worked at Manning's Grocery after I did.) Our love and prayers are with you.

I Will Arise

Lyrics by Joseph Hart in Hymns Composed on Various Subjects (1759);

Music, "Arise", from William Walker's Southern Harmony and Musical Companion (1835)

1. Come, ye sinners, poor and wretched,
Weak and wounded, sick and sore;
Jesus ready stands to save you,
Full of pity joined with pow'r.

Refrain: I will arise and go to Jesus,
He will embrace me in His arms;
In the arms of my dear Savior,
O there are ten thousand charms.

2. Come, ye needy, come, and welcome,
God's free bounty glorify;
True belief and true repentance,
Every grace that brings you nigh.


3. Come, ye weary, heavy laden,
Bruised and broken by the fall;
If you tarry till you're better,
You will never come at all.


4. Let not conscience make you linger,
Nor of fitness fondly dream;
All the fitness He requireth
Is to feel your need of Him.
