It is with sadness that I have read of the passing of such and sweet and kind lady. I met Ruby 45 years ago when her daughter, Brenda, and I shared a room at the hospital when our children were born. Ruby was a gentle lady and always helping others. She became my Avon lady and was really a sharp saleswoman. I know the family will miss her, but I also know they are pleased that she is now free of discomfort and walking the streets of gold with her savior. May the Lord comfort each family member and may they all keep Ruby alive in their hearts.

   Our sincerest condolences are extended to Mrs. Hudson's family and friends at this difficult time.

 Y'all take good care of each other!  TYPHOONS FOREVER! We'll Always Have Buckroe!

                          Love to all, Carol

Shall We Gather at the River

Words and Music by Rev. Robert Lowry (1826-1899)

 Shall we gather at the river,
Where bright angel feet have trod;
With its crystal tide forever
Flowing by the throne of God?


Yes, we'll gather at the river,
The beautiful, the beautiful river;
Gather with the saints at the river
That flows by the throne of God.

On the margin of the river,
Washing up its silver spray,
We will walk and worship ever,
All the happy golden day.


Ere we reach the shining river,
Lay we every burden down;
Grace our spirits will deliver,
And provide a robe and crown.


Soon we'll reach the shining river,
Soon our pilgrimage will cease,
Soon our happy hearts will quiver
With the melody of peace.
