Joseph Keith Pride

Dear Friends and Schoolmates,   

   We have a tragic edition of the NNHS Newsletter tonight, so much so that though I read the obituary twice, I refused to believe what I saw until I was prompted.  Keith Pride, one of the twin sons of Patsy Floyd Pride ('62) of VA, passed away suddenly at home in Virginia Beach on Monday, January 26, 2009 at the age of 41.

  From Brenda Amos Williams ('62) of VA - 01/29/09:

Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here we might as well dance.

It Is Well with My Soul

Words by Horatio G. Spafford, 1873
Music by Philip P. Bliss, 1876

When peace, like a river, attendeth my way,
When sorrows like sea billows roll;
Whatever my lot, Thou hast taught me to say,
It is well, it is well with my soul.
It is well with my soul,
It is well, it is well with my soul.

Though Satan should buffet, tho' trials should come,
Let this blest assurance control,
That Christ has regarded my helpless estate,
And hath shed His own blood for my soul.
It is well with my soul,
It is well, it is well with my soul.

My sin—oh, the bliss of this glorious tho't:
My sin, not in part, but the whole,
Is nailed to the cross and I bear it no more,
Praise the Lord, praise the Lord, O my soul!
It is well with my soul,
It is well, it is well with my soul.

And, Lord, haste the day when the faith shall be sight,
The clouds be rolled back as a scroll,
The trump shall resound and the Lord shall descend,
"Even so" it is well with my soul.
It is well with my soul,
It is well, it is well with my soul.
