Carrie Dawson House
(d. 04 Sept 2020)

Dear Friends and Schoolmates,   

   I was saddened to read the news of the death of Carrie Dawson House, mother of Olivia House Brickey ('65) of VA, who passed away in Newport News on Friday, September 04, 2020. 

   My late mama and I I knew her not only as Olivia's mother, but also from her days as a checker at the Colonial Store in Stuart Gardens. She was unfailingly pleasant and smiling, and always brightened our day.

Olivia and family,

Iím so sorry for the loss of your mom. She was such a sweet lady, very funny too, she always made me laugh. She was a great friend to my mom and dad over the years. They really enjoyed her visits; so did my sister and I when we were there. She was a good butter bean sheller as well. Mama would give her a pot to help shell the beans when we were picking them. We had several phone calls in the evenings, she liked to check up on me to see how I was doing and tell me about her day. She will be missed! Our deepest sympathy!

I have so many good memories spending time with Aunt Carrie; my family use to visit her and Uncle Charlie in Virginia as a child. We spent Christmas together at my Aunt Mae's as a child. My daddy was Aunt Carrie's brother. God Bless her and family. Give my daddy a hug for me in heaven. ❤

Lead Me Gently Home

Words and Music by Will L. Thompson, 1879
(07 Nov 1847 - 20 Sept 1909)


Lead me gently home, Father,
Lead me gently home;
When lifeís toils are ended,
And parting days have come,
Sin no more shall tempt me,
Neíer from Thee Iíll roam,
If Thouíll only lead me, Father,
Lead me gently home.

* Refrain:
Lead me gently home, Father,
Lead me gently home, Father,
Lest I fall upon the wayside,
Lead me gently home.

Lead me gently home, Father,
Lead me gently home;
In lifeís darkest hours, Father,
When lifeís troubles come,
Keep my feet from wandíring,
Lest from Thee I roam,
Lest I fall upon the wayside,
Lead me gently home.
