To the family of Ray,
Just a note to let you know how saddened I was to learn of the death of Ray.
She was a faithful member of Parkview Baptist Church.
I sang with her in the choir and went to many of the Women's Missionary Union meeting she attended. She was a special lady who had a hard time, health wise, the last couple of years. She was a "fighter" and a fine Christian lady.
She will be missed by many of her church family for many years to come.

I know how important your relationship with your mother was to you. You were a wonderful daughter to her. May the grace of God give you peace at this time. And may you be able to smile in the midst of your tears as you remember special moments that you shared. God bless you.

I Will Arise
Lyrics by Joseph Hart in Hymns Composed on Various Subjects (1759);
Music, "Arise", from William Walker's Southern Harmony and Musical Companion (1835)
1. Come, ye sinners, poor and wretched,
Weak and wounded, sick and sore;
Jesus ready stands to save you,
Full of pity joined with pow'r.
Refrain: I will arise and
go to Jesus,
He will embrace me in His arms;
In the arms of my dear Savior,
O there are ten thousand charms.
2. Come, ye needy, come, and welcome,
God's free bounty glorify;
True belief and true repentance,
Every grace that brings you nigh.
3. Come, ye weary, heavy laden,
Bruised and broken by the fall;
If you tarry till you're better,
You will never come at all.
4. Let not conscience make you linger,
Nor of fitness fondly dream;
All the fitness He requireth
Is to feel your need of Him.
