  From Sandra Canepa ('56) of VA - 07/11/11, 12:01 AM - "  David Sage,   Freddy's brother":

Dear Friends,
 
I am deeply saddened to report that Fred (aka Freddy) Sage suffered a terrible loss today when his younger brother, David, quietly passed away.  
 
David has been a real trooper over these last several months since learning cancer had invaded almost every part of his body, and while he never gave up hope,  he also did not sugar coat the seriousness of his problem.  
 
With Freddy and Karen's help, he managed to stay somewhat independent and mobile.  I  never stopped by for a short visit that he wasn't up and neatly dressed, something he did for himself every day.  He also usually watched that TV station which shows the old movies, and I am going to miss our talks about the movie stars from ages ago.  Unlike myself, David always recognized them and knew their names. 
 
David will always remain very much alive in my memory....actually, I remember when his mother, Laura, was pregnant with him when we all were neighbors in Stuart Gardens.  And that may be the good part, i.e., he's once again with his parents and others from those early fun days in Stuart Gardens, to include     Johnny  (Canepa - '60) (02 Jan 1941 -18 Apr 1998) and my mother.
 
I know Freddy and Karen will be very much in your thoughts and prayers at this time.....and their address is 33 Elm Avenue, Newport News, VA 23601-3612.
 
Kind regards, sac

   Oh, Sandra, I'm so very sorry to hear this!  As a Stuart Gardens kid myself, I grew up with David; we shared many classes together over the years.  I had no idea he was ill.  Thank you so very much for letting me know, and please accept my deepest condolences on the loss of your dear friend.

Freddie and Karen, I am so sorry to read your loss. You are in my thoughts.
 

July 12, 2011

My deepest sympathy for your loss. I too, grew up in Stuart Gardens, right around the corner from the Sages and the Canepas. We were all such permanent fixtures back then, never thinking the neighborhood and those times would be gone forever, but I'm sure anyone from there has the most pleasant of memories. I remember David well, and always thought he was so nice, even when he fussed at me for being the neighborhood scamp.

May he rest in peace.

David and I were classmates at NNHS and graduated together. I remember his sense of humor and he could easily make you laugh. It was always fun to be with him. My thoughts and prayers are with his family.

David and I were best friends as children. We grew up across the street from each other in Stuart Gardens, a very special place. He was a good friend, a great guy and came from a wonderful, wonderful family. Everyone who knew him will miss him always. To Freddie and Karen and all of his extended family and friends, Cathy and I share in your deep sense of loss.

Lead, Kindly Light

Lyrics by
John Henry Newman, 1833
(21 Feb 1801 – 11 Aug 1890)

Fourth Verse written by Edward H. Bickersteth, Jr.

Music by John B. Dykes, 1865
(10 Mar 1823 – 22 Jan 1876)



Lead, kindly Light, amid th’encircling gloom,
Lead Thou me on!
The night is dark, and I am far from home;
Lead Thou me on!
Keep Thou my feet; I do not ask to see
The distant scene; one step enough for me.

I was not ever thus, nor prayed that Thou
Shouldst lead me on;
I loved to choose and see my path; but now
Lead Thou me on!
I loved the garish day, and, spite of fears,
Pride ruled my will. Remember not past years!

So long Thy power hath blessed me, sure it will,
Will lead me on.
O’er moor and fen, o’er crag and torrent, till
The night is gone,
And with the morn those angel faces smile,
Which I have loved long since, and lost awhile!

Meantime, along the narrow rugged path,
Thyself hast trod,
Lead, Savior, lead me home in childlike faith,
Home to my God.
To rest forever after earthly strife
In the calm light of everlasting life.
