We are so sorry for the loss of your mom. We knew her only for a short while but we loved her as though we knew her for years. We will keep her and your family in our prayers.

To Ruth's family, please accept my sincere condolences during this time of loss and sorrow. I met Ruth and Jimmy years ago through Doris and Gean Reynolds, who were my in-laws at the time. I have many happy memories of both of them, fun times we shared together. They were both wonderful people and I pray that they are at peace and that the family will, in time, be comforted by their memories.

Laura, I was so sorry to read about the loss of your mother. I remember her well and always thought a lot of her. I also did not know that your dad died last year. Again Barry and I are so sorry about your losses. I know what a difficult time it is.

Lead Me Gently Home

Words and Music by Will L. Thompson, 1879
(7 Nov 1847 - 20 Sept 1909)


Lead me gently home, Father,
Lead me gently home;
When life’s toils are ended,
And parting days have come,
Sin no more shall tempt me,
Ne’er from Thee I’ll roam,
If Thou’ll only lead me, Father,
Lead me gently home.

* Refrain:
Lead me gently home, Father,
Lead me gently home, Father,
Lest I fall upon the wayside,
Lead me gently home.

Lead me gently home, Father,
Lead me gently home;
In life’s darkest hours, Father,
When life’s troubles come,
Keep my feet from wand’ring,
Lest from Thee I roam,
Lest I fall upon the wayside,
Lead me gently home.
