Today, with much sorrow, we learned that Connie Bloxom Thompson lost her fight
with cancer. We understand that she passed away this afternoon, September
17th. We both talked to Connie recently and we knew that she was in a lot of
pain. We always knew what a wonderful person Connie was, but rediscovered to
what extent. When we talked with her, one of her main concerns was that she
didn't slight anyone in regards to expressing her thanks. She was still in
awe of the kindness shown her. She realized that there were some who gave to
her that could have used help themselves. She was very humble. Connie
endured much suffering but she knew that she was loved by very many of her
former classmates. May we all keep Connie's family in our thoughts and
prayers during the coming days and may you all be blessed for the love you

I am so very sorry to hear this,
Kathy! I spoke with Connie only a few weeks ago - just before her birthday
- and I'm still just numb with this news. Thank you for letting me know.

Patsy Bloxom Meider's Sister
More sad news. Patsy called me a few weeks ago and told me that her sister
had just been diagnosed with Pancreatic and liver cancer. She was given 3
months. Patsy asked me at that time not to notify the Class until she was
ready to tell you. Unfortunately Connie only made it 3 weeks. Patsy called
me today and said Connie passed away today around 2:30 pm. Patsy and Chuck
are presently traveling in the mountains and are staying in Big Meadow. No
plans had been made for the funeral at the time she called me, but she will be
driving to the funeral from there.
Please send Patsy your
prayers and cards, as I'm sure she would appreciate them (contact information
available upon request).
Thank you so much, Pat.
Connie Bloxom Thompson
Our deepest sympathies are
extended to Patsy and to all of Connie's friends and family at this

This Is My Father's World
Words by Maltbie D. Babcock, 1901
Traditional English Melody (Terra Beata), arranged by Franklin L.
This is my Fatherís world, and to
my listening ears
All nature sings, and round me rings the music of the spheres.
This is my Fatherís world: I rest me in the thought
Of rocks and trees, of skies and seas;
His hand the wonders wrought.
This is my Fatherís world, the birds their carols raise,
The morning light, the lily white, declare their Makerís praise.
This is my Fatherís world: He shines in all thatís fair;
In the rustling grass I hear Him pass;
He speaks to me everywhere.
This is my Fatherís world. O let me neíer forget
That though the wrong seems oft so strong, God is the ruler yet.
This is my Fatherís world: the battle is not done:
Jesus Who died shall be satisfied,
And earth and Heavín be one.
This is my Fatherís world, dreaming, I see His face.
I ope my eyes, and in glad surprise cry, ďThe Lord is in this place.Ē
This is my Fatherís world, from the shining courts above,
The Beloved One, His Only Son,
Cameóa pledge of deathless love.
This is my Fatherís world, should my heart be ever sad?
The lord is Kingólet the heavens ring. God reignsólet the earth be glad.
This is my Fatherís world. Now closer to Heaven bound,
For dear to God is the earth Christ trod.
No place but is holy ground.
This is my Fatherís world. I walk a desert lone.
In a bush ablaze to my wondering gaze God makes His glory known.
This is my Fatherís world, a wanderer I may roam
Whateíer my lot, it matters not,
My heart is still at home.
