Many years ago I was in a band with Janice. I remember her as always a very happy person and pleasant to be around. She was a talented singer. May she continue to sing in Heaven.

I'm so sorry to hear the news, Debbie and Diane. Mom only just mentioned your mother's passing.

Mrs. Grow was always so kind to me, just a kid from across the street. I remember her moderating a spelling bee with us once--Worcestershire stumped us all. She put up with us jumping on her bed, and she introduced me to Elvis's music.

I hope all is well with you both, and that your grief eases soon.

My sincerest sympathies to you, Diane and Debbie, and all who loved your mother on the loss of her here. I remember how joyous your mother was, and how she would sing all the time around the house. She had a beautiful voice and I imagine sang great lullabies to her grand and great-grand children.

Thine Be the Glory

Words by Edmond Louis Budry
(30 Aug 1854 - 12 Nov 1932)

Music by George Frideric Handel, 1947
(23 Feb 1685 - 14 Apr 1759)


Thine be the glory, risen, conq’ring Son;
Endless is the vict'ry, Thou o’er death hast won;
Angels in bright raiment rolled the stone away,
Kept the folded grave clothes where Thy body lay.
Thine be the glory, risen conq’ring Son,
Endless is the vict’ry, Thou o’er death hast won.

Lo! Jesus meets us, risen from the tomb;
Lovingly He greets us, scatters fear and gloom;
Let the church with gladness, hymns of triumph sing;
For her Lord now liveth, death hath lost its sting.
Thine be the glory, risen conq’ring Son,
Endless is the vict’ry, Thou o’er death hast won.

No more we doubt Thee, glorious Prince of life;
Life is naught without Thee; aid us in our strife;
Make us more than conq’rors, through Thy deathless love:
Bring us safe through Jordan to Thy home above.
Thine be the glory, risen conq’ring Son,
Endless is the vict’ry, Thou o’er death hast won.
