(22 July 1940 - 14 Mar 2016)

Warwick High School Class of 1958

Dear Friends and Schoolmates,  

   There is yet more sad if slightly belated news this Tuesday. 
  Pat Parker DiCarlo, Warwick HS Class of 1958, passed away in Newport News on Monday, March 14, 2016 at the age of 75.

From Mike Lindsay (Menchville HS - '83) of Northern VA - 03/21/16, 2:26 PM - "Obit in Daily Press":


Hope you are feeling better and enjoying some spring weather in Fayetteville. We actually had some SNOW Saturday at our home in Winchester.

I thought Iíd pass along the attached obituary from the Daily Press. Pat was Warwick í58 but I thought some of your readers may have known her or her parents. They were the longtime owners of E&E Auto Parts on Warwick Boulevard (near Dean and Donís Produce). The business was a NN fixture for decades. It always looked forlorn and run down but was actually a very lucrative businessó--a regional Motorcraft distributor (the Ford replacement parts).

My lovely wife is from the Roanoke area but has a whole Newport News side of the family of whom Pat is one of the last ones. My small world story is that Patís parents lived about a mile away from us in Denbigh and my family knew them or knew of them a good 20 years before I ever knew Becky. AND, my late great aunt and uncle, Atlee and Gracie Harris, lived two blocks away from them and had to have known them.

We went to the funeral Fridayódrove down that morning, did the funeral thing, had lunch, and drove back to Winchester. Had something we had to be back for that evening.

Anyway, thought Iíd pass it along. Take care and get well.


   Thank you, Mike. While I loved your small world story, I'm so sorry for your family's loss. You and your family have my deepest sympathies.

I had the blessing of coming to Riverside Hospital and praying with Pat just a week ago. She welcomed the prayers and my visit. Was able to ask God to bless her and comfort her and her whole family. May peace and healing be God's gift to each of you!

This Is My Father's World

Words by Maltbie D. Babcock, 1901
Traditional English Melody (Terra Beata), arranged by Franklin L. Sheppard, 1915

This is my Fatherís world, and to my listening ears
All nature sings, and round me rings the music of the spheres.
This is my Fatherís world: I rest me in the thought
Of rocks and trees, of skies and seas;
His hand the wonders wrought.

This is my Fatherís world, the birds their carols raise,
The morning light, the lily white, declare their Makerís praise.
This is my Fatherís world: He shines in all thatís fair;
In the rustling grass I hear Him pass;
He speaks to me everywhere.

This is my Fatherís world. O let me neíer forget
That though the wrong seems oft so strong, God is the ruler yet.
This is my Fatherís world: the battle is not done:
Jesus Who died shall be satisfied,
And earth and Heavín be one.

This is my Fatherís world, dreaming, I see His face.
I ope my eyes, and in glad surprise cry, ďThe Lord is in this place.Ē
This is my Fatherís world, from the shining courts above,
The Beloved One, His Only Son,
Cameóa pledge of deathless love.

This is my Fatherís world, should my heart be ever sad?
The lord is Kingólet the heavens ring. God reignsólet the earth be glad.
This is my Fatherís world. Now closer to Heaven bound,
For dear to God is the earth Christ trod.
No place but is holy ground.

This is my Fatherís world. I walk a desert lone.
In a bush ablaze to my wondering gaze God makes His glory known.
This is my Fatherís world, a wanderer I may roam
Whateíer my lot, it matters not,
My heart is still at home.
