Michele, My heart is so heavy with our loss. Your grandmother was the most unique woman I have ever known. So energetic, never a harsh word, always upbeat and just a good and loving friend to many. I will miss riding to and from church and lunch after church many times. You can be very proud to have come from her gene pool. You loved her; she knew it and you couldn't have made her life any better and she knew that too. That is the kind of love we all should have for our loved ones. I will continue to pray for you and your family as I know the loss is immeasurable and deep. We will see her one day by the river and under the tree. I look forward to seeing that sweet face with her precious smile.

There hasn't been a week that has passed since Mrs. Lamberth left us that I have not thought of her. She was such a strong woman and I hate that, as with us all, age will get the best of us in the end. I loved her and will miss her, but I know she is in a better place.

Catherine and Family,

Your mother will always be remembered by the Montague Family. Our mothers were so close living on Mulberry Avenue. We had many great times together. Johnny always asks about your mom when he visits me here in Florida. Our prayers and thoughts are with you and all your family.

Ethel was a dear, dear friend who we enjoyed visiting. She was a faithful, loving member of Orcutt Baptist where she attended Sunday School, the seniors' group, senior choir and went on MANY trips with us. I enjoyed her stories about her family and "old" Orcutt. She could always be found working puzzles or doing a craft. She will be missed. She's now finally at home with her beloved husband.

Take My Hand, Precious Lord

Words by the Rev. Thomas A. Dorsey
(02 July 1899 - 23 Jan 1993)

Music by George Nelson Allen
(07 Sept 1812 - 09 Dec 1877)

Precious Lord, take my hand
Lead me on,
Let me stand
I'm tired, I am weak I am worn
Through the storm, through the night
Lead me on to the light
Take my hand precious Lord, lead me home

When my way grows drear precious Lord linger near
When my life is almost gone
Hear my cry,
Hear my call
Hold my hand lest I fall
Take my hand precious Lord, lead me home

When the darkness appears and the night draws near
And the day is past and gone
At the river I stand
Guide my feet,
Hold my hand
Take my hand precious Lord, lead me home

Precious Lord, take my hand
Lead me on,
Let me stand
I am tired, I am weak, I am worn
Through the storm, through the night
Lead me on to the light
Take my hand precious Lord, lead me home
