Dear Christine & Family,
Our thoughts and prayers go out you and your family. Jimmy and my daddy (Frankie Fisher), were very good friends and we are so sad to here of your loss. I am sure that they will meet up together in heaven and I am sure that they will have as much fun as they did here.

Morning Has Broken
Words: Eleanor Farjeon
Music: Traditional Gaelic
1. Morning has broken like the first morning;
Blackbird has spoken like the first bird.
Praise for the singing! Praise for the morning!
Praise for them springing fresh from the Word!
2. Sweet the rain's new fall sunlit from heaven,
Like the first dewfall on the first grass.
Praise for the sweetness of the wet garden,
Sprung in completeness where His feet pass.
3. Mine is the sunlight! Mine is the morning,
Born of the one light Eden saw play!
Praise with elation; praise ev'ry morning,
God's recreation of the new day!
