Dear Nan and family,
Hope you remember me; I am Marion Miles' granddaughter, Lynne. So sorry to read of the loss of Gladys. I remember when I was young visiting with Grandmother Marion and ya'll coming over. I know you will miss her, and you and your family will be in my prayers.

It was pleasure to meet you and your mother. I grew to love and admire Mrs. Robinson so much for her patience and self determination. I will always remember her.
I extend my sincere condolences to you in hopes that, in some small way, it will be of some comfort to you to know how much your mother impressed others and was loved.
It was so evident of how you loved and respected mother.
Be encouraged and blessed.
~ Beulah Davis, LSW, Riverside Hospice, Newport News, Virginia

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.
