Earl and I are sad to learn of Billy's passing. To the Gwynn Family, our thoughts are with you at this time of loss. Billy was one of my favorite supervisors, and we were also neighbors in Barcroft during the 80's.

Bonnie and Family, Sean, Billy and Heidi,

I am heartbroken to learn of your father's passing, as I was when I saw Bonnie earlier this year and learned you had already lost your mother. Losing one parent is harrowing at best- losing a second is equally painful and presents with different challenges. If I can help you in any way, please don't hesitate to ask.

Please know that you will remain in my thoughts and prayers.

With Love and Fond Memories,

God Be with You Till We Meet Again

Music by
William Gould Tomer, 1882
(05 Oct 1833 - 26 Sept 1896)

 Lyrics by Jeremiah Eames Rankin, 1880
(02 Jan 1828 - 28 Nov 1904)


God be with you till we meet again;
By His counsels guide, uphold you,
With His sheep securely fold you;
God be with you till we meet again.

Till we meet, till we meet,
Till we meet at Jesus’ feet;
Till we meet, till we meet,
God be with you till we meet again.

God be with you till we meet again;
When life’s perils thick confound you;
Put His arms unfailing round you;
God be with you till we meet again.

Till we meet, till we meet,
Till we meet at Jesus’ feet;
Till we meet, till we meet,
God be with you till we meet again.

God be with you till we meet again;
Keep love’s banner floating o’er you,
Strike death’s threatening wave before you;
God be with you till we meet again.

Till we meet, till we meet,
Till we meet at Jesus’ feet;
Till we meet, till we meet,
God be with you till we meet again.
