To the family and friends of Adrienne. Allow me to express my sentiments with this scripture. "Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of tender mercies, and the God of all comfort. 2nd Corinthians 1:3

Our prayers are with your family Mr. Cox, I am the sister-in-law of your niece Leslie Taylor, I am so sorry for your loss I only met Adrienne a few times but she was a very lovely and gracious human being and loved everyone rather she knew them or not! God Bless, Paula Taylor and Family Chesterfield, Va

Our sympathy is with the family and all who knew and loved Adrienne Price Cox. Her parents, Dr. and Mrs. Bruce Price were dear friends of ours. We talked to Adrienne last year at the N.N.H.S. Class of '57 Christmas dinner at the Omni. She had been through so much, yet she was still beautiful. We were fortunate to be invited to this party as we are friends of Pat (Branch) and Richard Coltrane of that class. We graduated in '60 and '61. May God bless and give each of you strength.
Frederick Mays (Newport News, VA ) - August 21, 2006

Servant of God, Well Done!

Words by Charles Wesley (28 Dec 1707 - 29 Mar 1788)
Music by George J. Elvey (27 Mar 1816 - 9 Dec 1893)

(The Methodist Hymnal, 1966, #288)

Wesley wrote this hymn in 1770 on the occasion of the death of clergyman George White.
Elvey's tune, "Diademata", has been set to several other hymns, notably "Crown Him with Many Thorns" and "Soldiers of Christ, Arise".

 Servant of God, well done!
Thy glorious warfare’s past;
The battle’s fought, the race is won,
And thou art crowned at last.

With saints enthroned on high,
Thou dost thy Lord proclaim,
And still to God salvation cry,
Salvation to the Lamb!

O happy, happy soul!
In ecstasies of praise,
Long as eternal ages roll,
Thou seest Thy Savior’s face.

Redeemed from earth and pain,
Ah! when shall we ascend,
And all in Jesus’ presence reign
With our translated friend?
