Hymn Sings

I was destined to meet you Orpha!  
First as my mom's room mate and then as someone I had the privilege to serve

You and "Buddy" were always an inspiration to those around you! 
I had to chuckle when "Buddy" told me stories of when you dated and were first married...you sure must have been spunky in those days! 
The unconditional love I sensed and saw"Buddy"demonstrate was something I hope that I live out in my own life

I will miss those times at 3 and 4 in the morning when you weren't able to sleep or when we were getting around for the day, when we would sing hymns together. I remember leaving the hymnal in the drawer beside your bed...we were gonna need it again anyway! 

What I remember most is when you sang "Amazing Grace" with all of your might!  
The very first time I heard you I remember tearing up. 
There was always a peace and a calm about you and if I was having a bad day, yes I would duck into your room to see you until I felt better!

I love you Orpha....you will be missed! 
We will meet again on the other side!
