Thank you for everything you've done for me over the years and all you've taught me. I really do appreciate everything (and I know I've told you that many many times too). It was really hard for me to see you get so sick and weak because I always thought of you as a strong independant woman who didn't depend on anyone but herself. I hated seeing that taken away from you. I enjoyed our trips to the beauty shop and lunch and will miss them terribly. I miss you tons and love you lots.
Love your grand daughter,
Ashley

Betty,
It saddens me to think that Betty is not with us anymore. She was a very close friend and was like family to me. I will miss the times that we shared together. Anytime I needed anything you were always there if you could do it. I will miss your laughter, your voice, and the time that we spent together. In closing I would like to offer the family my deepest sympathy. My love and prayers are with them.

Morning Has Broken

Words: Eleanor Farjeon
Music: Traditional Gaelic


1. Morning has broken like the first morning;
Blackbird has spoken like the first bird.
Praise for the singing! Praise for the morning!
Praise for them springing fresh from the Word!

2. Sweet the rain's new fall sunlit from heaven,
Like the first dewfall on the first grass.
Praise for the sweetness of the wet garden,
Sprung in completeness where His feet pass.

3. Mine is the sunlight! Mine is the morning,
Born of the one light Eden saw play!
Praise with elation; praise ev'ry morning,
God's recreation of the new day!
