From http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Till_the_End_of_Time_%28Buddy_Kaye_and_Ted_Mossman_song%29:

"Till the End of Time" is a popular song written by lyricist Buddy Kaye and composer Ted Mossman and published in 1945. The melody is based on Frédéric Chopin's Polonaise in A flat major, Op. 53, the "Polonaise héroique".

A number of recordings of the song were made in 1945. The biggest hit was by Perry Como; another version by Dick Haymes also charted; the Les Brown orchestra, with vocalist Doris Day, and Ginny Simms also made a recording of the song. It featured prominently in the 1946 film of the same name.

The Perry Como recording was recorded on July 3, 1945, and released by RCA Victor Records as catalog number 20-1709. The record first reached the Billboard magazine charts on August 9, 1945, and lasted 17 weeks on the chart, peaking at #1. This was Como's first #1 hit song. [1]

The Dick Haymes recording was recorded on July 2, 1945, and released by Decca Records as catalog number 18699. The record first reached the Billboard magazine charts on September 13, 1945 and lasted 8 weeks on the chart, peaking at #3. [1]

PRAYER REQUEST:

  From Elizabeth Tedder Nunnally ('65 / '68) of VA - 05/05/18 - "RE:   Joyce Tedder Rossman ('68) and her husband, Carl Rossman, of PA":

It is with a very heavy heart that I want to let my friends and family know that my sister, Joyce Tedder Rossman, is very ill. She was recovering from her auto accident when it was discovered that she had liver, lung and bone cancer. Two days before hers was found, her husband, Carl, was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. Joyce had been recovering at home. They have both been in chemo for 5 weeks or so. Carl is doing very well; Joyce, however, has had to be put back in the hospital, had her second blood transfusion but is not doing well at all. Carl called me this afternoon to let me know how bad she was and what kind of "set back" she was having. A week ago the doctors told her she might have 6-8 months but Carl said the time would be much shorter now with this setback. She called and told me about the cancer about 2 months ago but wanted me to wait for a little while before I announced it. My heart is broken but I wanted my friends to know what was going on. Please, please put them on your prayer list.

   Oh, Elizabeth, I am so very sorry to learn of this! I'm keeping all of y'all in my prayers, as are a great many other people, I am sure.

FINALLY:
From www.ajokeaday.com - 05/05/15:

A guy won the lottery and decided to buy the nicest car he could find. He bought a Ferrari.

It went 320 mph, had a V-12 engine, and went from 0-60 in 3 seconds. He thought nobody would be able to pass him.

He decided to show his car off around town. He approached a stoplight and at that stoplight came an old guy on a moped.

The old guy said, "Nice car you have there. May I take a look inside?"

The man said, "Sure, look around all you want."

When the old guy came out he said the car was all right. The guy who owned the Ferrari was quite annoyed; his car was more than all right, so he decided to show the old man what his car could do. When the light turned green the man accelerated to 140 mph.

Just as the guy thought he had lost the old man, he saw a black dot in his rear view mirror and it was gaining on him. IT WAS THE OLD GUY ON THE MOPED.

The moped passed the Ferrari. The guy in the Ferrari was like, "No way." He then sped up to 240 mph and dusted the moped.

But just as the guy in the Ferrari thought he had it made, he saw a black dot in his rear view mirror and it was gaining on him. IT WAS THE OLD GUY ON THE MOPED.

The moped passed him again. The guy in the Ferrari was getting mad. How could a moped do this? So he said, "That’s it!" and floored it.

He blazed past the old man going 320 mph. The guy in the Ferrari said, "There’s no way he can pass me now!"

But just as he said that, he saw a black dot in his rear view mirror and it was gaining on him. IT WAS THE OLD GUY ON THE MOPED.

There was nothing the guy in the Ferrari could do. He was going as fast as he could. But this time the guy on the moped didn't pass him; it hit the back of his car.

The guy in the Ferrari stopped immediately and ran to the old man. Amazingly the old man was still alive. The guy asked the old man if there was anything he could do.

The old man replied, "Yeah, unhook my suspenders off of your mirror."

Till the End of Time

Words by Buddy Kaye; Music by Ted Mossman
(melody based on Frédéric Chopin's Polonaise in A flat major, Op. 53, the "Polonaise héroique"), 1945

Recorded by Perry Como
(18 May 1912 - 12 May 2001)

Till the end of time, long as stars are in the blue
Long as there's a Spring of birds to sing I'll go on loving you
Till the end of time, long as roses bloom in May
My love for you will grow deeper with every passing day

Till the wells run dry and each mountain disappears
I'll be there for you to care for you through laughter and through tears
So take my heart in sweet surrender and tenderly say that I'm
The one you love and live for till the end of time

Till the wells run dry and each mountain disappears
I'll be there for you to care for you through laughter and through tears
So take my heart in sweet surrender and tenderly say that I'm
The one you love and live for till the end of time
