Dear Friends and Schoolmates,

   We have yet another sad edition of the NNHS Newsletter today.
  C.T. Elliott, Class of 1957, husband of Ann Cain Elliott ('58) of DE, passed away at his home in Seaford, Delaware on Saturday, September 12, 2015, at the age of 77. 

     From Fred Mays ('60) of VA - 09/15/15, 5:26 PM - "N.N.H.S. class of 1957 wants everyone to know.":

Hi Miss Carol:

I received a call this afternoon from   Nancy Timberlake Spencer, class of 57. She asked that I do whatever I can to spread the word that a guy in her class passed away on Saturday in Seaford, Delaware. He is Carroll Thomas Elliott (C.T.). He is the husband of Ann Cain, class of 58.

Nancy said that his picture is not in the yearbook as he was drafted into the military; however, he did actually graduate and get a diploma from N.N.H.S., she stated.

Ann Cain Elliott's address is 300 Graham Branch Road, Seaford, Delaware 19973.

   Oh, Fred, I'm very sorry to learn this. Thank you both so much for letting me know.

Amazing Grace

Words by John Newton, 1779
(24 July 1725 21 Dec 1807)

 Amazing grace! (how sweet the sound)
That sav'd a wretch like me!
I once was lost, but now am found,
Was blind, but now I see.

'Twas grace that taught my heart to fear,
And grace my fears reliev'd;
How precious did that grace appear,
The hour I first believ'd!

Thro' many dangers, toils and snares,
I have already come;
'Tis grace has brought me safe thus far,
And grace will lead me home.

The Lord has promis'd good to me,
His word my hope secures;
He will my shield and portion be,
As long as life endures.

Yes, when this flesh and heart shall fail,
And mortal life shall cease;
I shall possess, within the veil,
A life of joy and peace.

The earth shall soon dissolve like snow,
The sun forbear to shine;
But God, who call'd me here below,
Will be forever mine.
