Please put this on the prayer list as Bobby Burns' ('58) wife, Carolyn, has suffered a heart attack and is hospitalized in Mechanicsville, Virginia.
Hi Carol -
I received the email below from Bobby
Burns who graduated with me in '58. Carolyn is his wife.
You may have already been notified of this - but just in case you have not, thought you could add her to our prayer list.
Thank you, Carol, for all that you do for us.
Carolyn suffered a heart attack yesterday at home.
Carolyn is in Memorial Regional Hospital in Mechanicsville. She is in a coma. Our Family asks you to pray for her recovery.
OH, NO! I'm so very sorry to learn this sad news! Thank you for letting us know, Wayne and Evelyn. Our prayers will all be with Carolyn and Bobby.
From the Head Cheerleader of 1958, Evelyn Fryer Fish of TX - 04/14/09, 5:02 PM - "CAROLYN BURNS":
Received from Bobby Burns today......so very sad.
My Family and I wish to THANK YOU for taking the time to include my wife Carolyn and our Family in your thoughts and prayers.
Today at 11:01 A.M., The LORD took his child Carolyn, my beautiful wife, and Mother and Grandmother, to be with him. Carolyn has no pain nor is she suffering. Lord, how we tried to heal her body, however, it was not in the Master's plan.
To honor Carolyn's wishes, Her Celebration of LIFE will be private.
Your Brother In CHRIST,
I'm so sorry to learn this. I appreciate your letting us know, Ev.

Abide With Me
Words by Henry F. Lyte, 1847
Music by William H. Monk, 1861
Abide with me; fast falls the eventide;
The darkness deepens; Lord with me abide.
When other helpers fail and comforts flee,
Help of the helpless, O abide with me.
Swift to its close ebbs out life's little day;
Earth's joys grow dim; its glories pass away;
Change and decay in all around I see;
O Thou who changest not, abide with me.
Not a brief glance I beg, a passing word,
But as Thou dwell'st with Thy disciples, Lord,
Familiar, condescending, patient, free.
Come not to sojourn, but abide with me.
Come not in terrors, as the King of kings,
But kind and good, with healing in Thy wings;
Tears for all woes, a heart for every plea.
Come, Friend of sinners, thus abide with me.
Thou on my head in early youth didst smile,
And though rebellious and perverse meanwhile,
Thou hast not left me, oft as I left Thee.
On to the close, O Lord, abide with me.
I need Thy presence every passing hour.
What but Thy grace can foil the tempter's power?
Who, like Thyself, my guide and stay can be?
Through cloud and sunshine, Lord, abide with me.
I fear no foe, with Thee at hand to bless;
Ills have no weight, and tears no bitterness.
Where is death's sting? Where, grave, thy victory?
I triumph still, if Thou abide with me.
Hold Thou Thy cross before my closing eyes;
Shine through the gloom and point me to the skies.
Heaven's morning breaks, and earth's vain shadows flee;
In life, in death, O Lord, abide with me.
