We are so sorry to hear
of your loss and will keep you in our thoughts during this sad
October 10, 2008
Ms. Thelma was a
wonderful neighbor who always had time to talk. When we would see
her outside reading on her porch, my 10 year old daughter would
always run over to talk to Ms Thelma and they really enjoyed one
another. We will miss her dearly, but know that she has gone on to
a more beautiful place of peace and glory. Our deepest sympathies
go out to her family and we will keep you all in our prayers
during this difficult time.
Ron, Jill & Baylee Blackburn
Our sincerest condolences are extended to Terry and Sue and their families and
friends at this time.
Y'all take good care of each
other! TYPHOONS FOREVER! We'll
Love to all, Carol

For All the Saints
- Lyrics by William W. How
(1823-1897) , 1864
Music (Sine Nomine) by Ralph Vaughan Williams (1872-1958), 1906
For all the saints
who from their labors rest,
Who thee by faith
before the world confessed.
Thy name, O Jesus,
be forever blest.
Thou wast their Rock,
their Fortress and their Might;
Thou, Lord, their captain
in the well-fought fight;
Thou, in the darkness drear,
their one true light.
O may Thy soldiers,
faithful, true, and bold,
Fight as the saints
who nobly fought of old,
And win with them
the victor's crown of gold.
And when the strife is fierce,
the warfare long,
Steals on the ear
the distant triumph song,
And hearts are brave again,
and arms are strong.
From earth's wide bounds,
from ocean's farthest coast,
Thro' gates of pearl
streams in the countless host,
Singing to Father,
Son, and Holy Ghost,
the Saints" midi and lyrics courtesy
