Harvey Franklin Estes
Ferguson High School Class of 1965
Dear Friends and Schoolmates,
Not unexpectedly, we have lost another one of our friends. Harvey Estes (Ferguson High School Class of 1965), has passed away at his home in Mount Airy , MD at the age of 60 after a battle with melanoma. Although he did not actually graduate from Newport News High School, he grew up with many of us. His older sister, the late Helen Estes Thomas (1 Feb 1942 - 12 Feb 1997), was a member of the Class of 1960
From Linda Lane Lane ('64) of VA - 08/29/07:
... Another person from the North End is in need of our prayers. Some of you may remember Harvey Estes. He went to Stonewall Jackson and NNHS. I think he graduated from Ferguson in '65. Harvey has cancer and is not doing well. Please keep him in your thoughts and prayers. His sister, Helen, graduated in 1960. She died some years ago from cancer. Harvey lives in the D.C./MD. area and his parents still reside in NN....

This Is My Father's World
Words by Maltbie D. Babcock, 1901
Traditional English Melody (Terra Beata), arranged by Franklin L. Sheppard, 1915
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.
