Hampton High School Class of 1956

Dear Friends and Schoolmates,   
 Here is the latest sad news, as promised. 
    Charlie Mugler, Hampton High School Class of 1956 and husband of Lydia Powell Mugler ('58), passed away on Friday, August 15, 2008 at the age of 70. 

  From Joe Drewry ('58) of VA - 08/15/08 - "  Lydia Powell Mugler's husband Charlie died today, 8/15/08":

Charlie died about 6pm this evening, 8/15/08.
Funeral arrangements are incomplete.  I expect the obituary to be in Sunday's Daily Press and I will circulate it when available.
Lydia is doing well under the circumstances.  She and the immediate family have been with Charlie at the Hospice facility since he was transferred there from the Williamsburg hospital.
I just talked to Lydia and she expressed thanks for all the cards and support from friends and classmates.

   Oh, Joe, I'm so sorry to hear this! Even though it was not unexpected, it is nevertheless heartrending. Please extend our love and condolences to Lydia.

Amazing Grace

Words by John Newton, 1779

 Amazing grace! (how sweet the sound)
That sav'd a wretch like me!
I once was lost, but now am found,
Was blind, but now I see.

'Twas grace that taught my heart to fear,
And grace my fears reliev'd;
How precious did that grace appear,
The hour I first believ'd!

Thro' many dangers, toils and snares,
I have already come;
'Tis grace has brought me safe thus far,
And grace will lead me home.

The Lord has promis'd good to me,
His word my hope secures;
He will my shield and portion be,
As long as life endures.

Yes, when this flesh and heart shall fail,
And mortal life shall cease;
I shall possess, within the veil,
A life of joy and peace.

The earth shall soon dissolve like snow,
The sun forbear to shine;
But God, who call'd me here below,
Will be forever mine.
