Jerry,
Please accept my deepest condolences on the passing of your mother.

To Mr. Winberry and son, Jerry: My deepest sympathy go to you. I spoke to you, Jerry, the day you came in to Peninsula Funeral Home to make arrangements. I recall you mentioned that you graduated in 1964. I was there with my two sisters to make prearrangements for my mother, who is in a nursing home. I believe you met my sister, Mary Anne ('58), and I graduated in '60. I work part-time at the funeral home, but was not working on Monday, when I met you. I know it is tough for you and I want you to know you are in my prayers.
May God bless you, Fred Mays, N.N.H.S. '60

Dear Jim and Jerry, I am so saddened by Sarah's passing. She was a special, caring and delightful person. Jim, you and Sarah were such good friends to Moma and Daddy. You and Sarah took me to pick out Mother's grave site in the Garden of Gethsemane in 1970; Daddy joined her in 1971. I shall never forget your kindness during my time of sorrow.
Jerry, my prayers and deepest sympathy are with you, your Dad and Lou.

Love, Linda Letchworth Enochs, Rex Enochs and Family

O Lord of Life, Where'er They Be

- Lyrics by
Frederick L. Hosmer, 1888; Music by Melchior Vulpius (circa 1560-1615)


O Lord of life, where’er they be,
Safe in Thine own eternity,
Our dead are living unto Thee:
Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia!

All souls are Thine, and here or there
They rest within Thy sheltering care;
One providence alike they share:
Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia!

Thy Word is true, Thy ways are just;
Above the requiem, “Dust to dust,”
Shall rise our psalm of grateful trust:
Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia!

O happy they in God who rest,
No more by fear and doubt oppressed,
Living or dying, they are blest:
Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia!
