Beverly Eugene Rosser
(10 Jan 1944 - 29 May 2008)

Newport News High School Classes of 1963 and 1966

Dear Friends and Schoolmates,  
We have another sad edition of the NNHS Newsletter this morning.  Beverly Rosser, twin brother of the late 
  Waverly Rosser, Class of 1963,  passed away in Newport News on Thursday, May 29, 2008 at the age of 64.

   From Cheryl Mays Howard ('66/'67) of VA - 05/31/08 - "death":

There was a death notice for Beverly Rosser NNHS, not sure what class he and his twin brother    Waverly were in, yours or one earlier.
I went to Orcutt Baptist with them both... there should be an obit tomorrow.. I will be out of town...you know where.. Grandma land.
Peace & Blessing,

   Oh, Cheryl, I'm so sorry to hear this! Thank you for letting us know.

  I believe Beverly and Waverly began with the Class of 1962.  By 1963 when Waverly graduated, Beverly was listed with the Class of 1966. I believe he then joined the Marine Corps as did his brother, but as you know, my memory is frayed.

To the family of Beverly Eugene Rosser: I want to express my deepest sympathy and condolences at this time of your loss. It is so heartbreaking when we lose a precious loved one to the enemy, death. I'm sure her kindness and love for family will be missed. I come from a big family myself and it is very important to be close. I wanted to also share some comforting and faith-strengthening promises found in God's word. You can read of these at Revelation 21:3-5, John 5:28,29 and Psalms 37:29. I pray and hope that "the God of all comfort" JEHOVAH will comfort your hearts at this trying time.

My condolences to Bev's family. I was truly sorry, just now, to hear of his passing. He was one of the best at NNHS when we were there together in the early 60s.
Waverly, hang in and live the rest of it for both of you.
Sempi Fi.

What Wondrous Love Is This?

Words by Alexander Means
Music by William Walker, 1835

What wondrous love is this, O my soul, O my soul!
What wondrous love is this, O my soul!
What wondrous love is this that caused the Lord of bliss
To bear the dreadful curse for my soul, for my soul,
To bear the dreadful curse for my soul.

When I was sinking down, sinking down, sinking down,
When I was sinking down, sinking down,
When I was sinking down beneath God痴 righteous frown,
Christ laid aside His crown for my soul, for my soul,
Christ laid aside His crown for my soul.

To God and to the Lamb, I will sing, I will sing;
To God and to the Lamb, I will sing.
To God and to the Lamb Who is the great 'I Am';
While millions join the theme, I will sing, I will sing;
While millions join the theme, I will sing.

And when from death I知 free, I値l sing on, I値l sing on;
And when from death I知 free, I値l sing on.
And when from death I知 free, I値l sing and joyful be;
And through eternity, I値l sing on, I値l sing on;
And through eternity, I値l sing on.
