Mary & Family,
We are deeply saddened by your loss, he was a wonderful man, and loved you all completely. We know he will be missed, even though we have not seen him for several years, we are all at a loss for this loving human being. We are so blessed to have had you, as our neighbors for the many years we did in Millwood. May the good memories carry you through the toughest times ahead and God sets him free from all his pain. What a beautiful angel, we all have in heaven waiting for our joining when we ourselves cross over, to such a beautiful place...

I Will Arise
Lyrics by Joseph Hart in Hymns Composed on Various Subjects (1759);
Music, "Arise", from William Walker's Southern Harmony and Musical Companion (1835)
1. Come, ye sinners, poor and wretched,
Weak and wounded, sick and sore;
Jesus ready stands to save you,
Full of pity joined with pow'r.
Refrain: I will arise and
go to Jesus,
He will embrace me in His arms;
In the arms of my dear Savior,
O there are ten thousand charms.
2. Come, ye needy, come, and welcome,
God's free bounty glorify;
True belief and true repentance,
Every grace that brings you nigh.
3. Come, ye weary, heavy laden,
Bruised and broken by the fall;
If you tarry till you're better,
You will never come at all.
4. Let not conscience make you linger,
Nor of fitness fondly dream;
All the fitness He requireth
Is to feel your need of Him.
