Nola W. Bond
(16 May 1921 -  11 July 2008)

Dear Friends and Schoolmates,   
   We have more sad news this Sunday morning.  Nola W. Bond, mother of 
  Ricki Bond Giles ('60) of KY, Betty Bond Spatafore of VA,   Rosalie Bond Holt ('65) of VA, and      Linda May Bond Crayton ('66) of VA, passed away in Newport News on Friday, July 11, 2008 at the age of 87.

    From Linda May Bond Crayton ('66) of VA - 07/11/08, 11:20 PM - "My Mother":

Dear Carol,

This day  - 7-11, my mother passed away. She was 87 years old, born in Scott County, TN on May 16, 1921. My father was born in Wise County, VA and mother was fond of saying they met on a mule crossing the mountain.

I've spent the day making all those awful decisions one must make at a time like this with no sleep.....

Linda May

   Oh, Linda May, I am so very sorry to hear this news!  The loss of a parent is never easy, no matter what the circumstances, the quality of the relationship, or our ages.

   I'm hoping you can catch some needed sleep now.  Please accept my love and prayers and deepest condolences.

Tony, Ricki, Betty, Rosalie and Linda. We are so sorry to hear of the loss of your mom. She was such a lovely lady. We think of our childhood days in Copeland P ark when we played hide and seek & our home base was the street light in your yard, pitching horseshoes, shooting marbles, playing ball and riding our bikes. When Nita and I are together, we talk about all the good times we had with our friends on our street. Nita and her family from Atlanta, GA are visiting with us now in Williamsburg. If you are receiving visitors, please call me at 229-4508 or e-mail me at .
We would love to see all of you. With heartfelt sympathy and love: Tommy and Charlotte Gills Little and Jim and Nita Gills Stanley

Amazing Grace

Words by John Newton, 1779

 Amazing grace! (how sweet the sound)
That sav'd a wretch like me!
I once was lost, but now am found,
Was blind, but now I see.

'Twas grace that taught my heart to fear,
And grace my fears reliev'd;
How precious did that grace appear,
The hour I first believ'd!

Thro' many dangers, toils and snares,
I have already come;
'Tis grace has brought me safe thus far,
And grace will lead me home.

The Lord has promis'd good to me,
His word my hope secures;
He will my shield and portion be,
As long as life endures.

Yes, when this flesh and heart shall fail,
And mortal life shall cease;
I shall possess, within the veil,
A life of joy and peace.

The earth shall soon dissolve like snow,
The sun forbear to shine;
But God, who call'd me here below,
Will be forever mine.
