Dear Friends and Schoolmates,  

    There is more sad, if rather belated, news today.
 Kay Davis Smith, Class of 1957, sister of the late William Hugh Davis, Jr., passed away in Chattanooga, Tennessee on Tuesday, June 25, 2019 at the age of 79.

From Wayne Agee ('58) of FL - 11/04/19:

Sadly I must report that I was just made aware of Virginia McKay Smith's death. Kay passed away June 25th of this year at the age of 79. She was a graduate of NNHS Class of 1957 as well as one of the high school cheerleaders.

 She made her home in Chattanooga for a number of years, and will be missed by many. She was married to Bobby Jones and then to me.


This is Kay Davis' Obituary. She was in the Class of "57", a Cheerleader and was NN gal.

   Oh, Wayne, I'm so extremely sorry to learn this! You have my sincerest condolences.

Abide With Me

Words by Henry F. Lyte, 1847
Music by William H. Monk, 1861

Abide with me; fast falls the eventide;
The darkness deepens; Lord with me abide.
When other helpers fail and comforts flee,
Help of the helpless, O abide with me.

Swift to its close ebbs out life's little day;
Earth's joys grow dim; its glories pass away;
Change and decay in all around I see;
O Thou who changest not, abide with me.

Not a brief glance I beg, a passing word,
But as Thou dwell'st with Thy disciples, Lord,
Familiar, condescending, patient, free.
Come not to sojourn, but abide with me.

Come not in terrors, as the King of kings,
But kind and good, with healing in Thy wings;
Tears for all woes, a heart for every plea.
Come, Friend of sinners, thus abide with me.

Thou on my head in early youth didst smile,
And though rebellious and perverse meanwhile,
Thou hast not left me, oft as I left Thee.
On to the close, O Lord, abide with me.

I need Thy presence every passing hour.
What but Thy grace can foil the tempter's power?
Who, like Thyself, my guide and stay can be?
Through cloud and sunshine, Lord, abide with me.

I fear no foe, with Thee at hand to bless;
Ills have no weight, and tears no bitterness.
Where is death's sting? Where, grave, thy victory?
I triumph still, if Thou abide with me.

Hold Thou Thy cross before my closing eyes;
Shine through the gloom and point me to the skies.
Heaven's morning breaks, and earth's vain shadows flee;
In life, in death, O Lord, abide with me.
