Vera P. Cain
NEWPORT NEWS, VA - Vera Cain, beloved mother and grandmother, passed away peacefully at her home in Newport News on April 11, 2014.
A native of Fayetteville, North Carolina, she had lived in Virginia since 1952. She was 90 years old.
A life-long Christian, Vera was a homemaker, caretaker, and superb self-taught pianist who was always willing to play any tune she'd ever heard upon request.
She will be missed by all who knew her.
Preceded in death by her husband, Linwood Cain, and son, Thomas Cain, she is survived by four daughters: Sherry Hamilton of Cobbs Creek, Debbie Cain of Newport News, Barbara Payne (Larry) of Smithfield, and Patricia Gnatowsky (Randy) of Poquoson, as well as 11 grandchildren and 15 great-grandchildren.
Our sincerest condolences are extended to Mrs. Cain's family and friends at this difficult time.
Y'all take good care of each other! TYPHOONS FOREVER! We'll Always Have Buckroe!
Love to all, Carol

Faith Looks Up to Thee
Words by Ray Palmer, 1830
Music by Lowell Mason (08 Jan 1792 - 11 Aug 1872), 1832
My faith looks up to Thee,
Thou Lamb of Calvary,
Now hear me while I pray,
Take all my guilt away,
O let me from this day
Be wholly Thine!
May Thy rich grace impart
Strength to my fainting heart,
My zeal inspire!
As Thou hast died for me,
O may my love to Thee,
Pure warm, and changeless be,
A living fire!
While life's dark maze I tread,
And griefs around me spread,
Be Thou my Guide;
Bid darkness turn to day,
Wipe sorrow's tears away,
Nor let me ever stray
From Thee aside.
When ends life's transient dream,
When death's cold sullen stream
Over me roll;
Blest Savior, then in love,
Fear and distrust remove;
O bear me safe above,
A ransomed soul!
