Although I have not known Mrs. Ramsay for very long, I feel very blessed that our paths crossed. She was such a fascinating and truly genuine lady. I always walked away from a visit with her with a smile on my face and admiration for a truly amazing woman. My sympathy is extended to Kitty's family and friends. Our loss is Heaven's gain!

Kitty Ramsay was a special person and we will miss her so much. Her niece, Cathy, and I will miss our weekly visits and taking her to the JRCC for dinner. It just will not be the same without her in our lives anymore. We loved her so much and she was such an inspiration to us and all that knew her. Her company just lit up our lives. Cathy has always said that she would like to be able to follow in her footsteps with Aunt Kitty's grace and humor.

The King of Love My Shepherd Is

Words by Henry W. Baker
Music by John B. Dykes

The King of love my shepherd is,
Whose goodness faileth never.
I nothing lack if I am His,
And He is mine forever.
Where streams of living water flow,
My ransomed soul He leadeth;
And, where the verdant pastures grow,
With food celestial feedeth.

Perverse and foolish, oft I strayed,
But yet in love He sought me;
And on His shoulder gently laid,
And home, rejoicing, brought me.

In death's dark vale I fear no ill,
With Thee, dear Lord, beside me;
Thy rod and staff my comfort still,
Thy cross before to guide me.

Thou spreadst a table in my sight;
Thy unction grace bestoweth;
And oh, what transport of delight
From Thy pure chalice floweth!

And so through all the length of days,
Thy goodness faileth never;
Good Shepherd, may I sing Thy praise
Within Thy house forever.
