Scott’z Service

Dis b frum Altosinger:

Well, we tried to get the service on Saturday, but the church is having a big wedding that day, and of course the rehearsal is the day before, so that left us with Thursday, March 8th, 2 PM, PST at First Presbyterian Church of Yakima, corner of Yakima Avenue and 8th Avenue. If anyone would like to do so, donations may be made in Scott’s name to the First Presbyterian Deacons’ Fund. They have helped us several times over the years, and i know it would please Scott to see someone else helped.

I did get a good solid 9 hours’ sleep last night, and i have been eating, so i am being good, for those who are concerned. The prayer cover has been phenomenal—i could not be in as good a shape as i am without it. Please keep it up; i will need much wisdom in the months ahead. GOD bless you all, and thank you for all the kind e-mails and love you have sent! It has been such a help and encouragement!
Love you all bunches! —janey

    • Thanks, sweetie. And thanks to all of you. The love you all have given has been such a great help! I feel like i’m wrapped up in the cuddliest blanket—you know, a nice warm blankie in a cool room.
      Love you all bunches! —janey

  1. I just found out Janey. I am so very sorry. Scott sees the sunshine, choruses of birds and angels. My heart, it hurts for you. I wish I could do something for you. {{{{{{Janey & family}}}}}

    Hymn:

    When Peace like a river attendeth my way,
    When sorrows like sea billows roll.
    What ever my lot, Thou has taught me to say,
    “It is well, It is well with my soul.”

    “It is well with my soul.”
    “It is well, It is well with my soul.”

    The Lord will be him as he goes to meadows with no illness, no pain.
    The Lord will be with you during your loss. Know though, you will see him again. It is a promise God gave us in our Lord Jesus.

    I will pray for you and yours.

    Love, Carol/KCT

    • We are singing that hymn Thursday! And i am so glad that he can see our LORD now—his faith is sight. Ooh, that gives me chills!
      Love you bunches—janey

  2. “Deep River — my home is over Jordan,
    Deep River — I want to cross over into Campground.
    Oh don’t you want to go to that Gospel Feast?
    That promised land, where all is peace…
    Deep River – my home is over Jordan,
    Deep River — I want to cross over into Campground.”

    Dear one, I’ve been thinking so much about you…these next few days when you wake up and for a second all is as it was, and then you remember that the world is changed.

    “Most merciful God, whose wisdom is beyond our understanding: Deal graciously with Janey in her grief. Surround her with your love, that she may not be overwhelmed by her loss, but have confidence in your goodness, and strength to meet the days to come…”

    I’m so glad to read what you wrote above — that you are thinking of where Scott is and the incredible indescribable grace and joy he is experiencing right now this very moment. He has only gone on ahead a little ways, dear Janey.

    “Give us faith to see in death the gate of eternal life, so that in quiet confidence we may continue our course on earth, until, by your call, we are reunited with those who have gone before…”

    Janey, at our church we do a Thursday mass at 5:30 — I know the priest would offer a Requiem Mass for Scott — would you like me to ask for that?

    • Oh, yes, please. That would be delightful. I may play the Verdi Requiem just coz i love the music…i only wish they had translated the poetry straight across instead of trying to make it rhyme in the liner notes. You lose the force of the thing that way, y’know? But i know where he is, and if the last 35 years have passed so quickly, it will only be a moment until we meet at Jesus’ feet. (Quick, now; which song is that? Sorry–i got to cleaning up some and i’m kinda wide awake now…) Thank you, dear one–you have been a source of strength for me, in case you didn’t know. Aifinkso we have a lot in common…..
      All my love—janey

  3. Your faith and courage is an inspiration. God blessed you and Scott with 35 beautiful years together, and He promises you eternity. {{{Janey}}}

  4. I wanted to share with you my favorite recessional hymn for funerals and memorials:

    “For all the saints, who from their labors rest,
    who thee by faith before the world confessed,
    thy Name, O Jesus, be forever blessed – Alleluia!

    Thou wast their rock, their fortress, and their might:
    thou, Lord, their Captain in the well-fought fight:
    thou, in the darkness drear, the one true Light — Alleluia!

    O blest communion, fellowship divine!
    We feebly struggle, they in glory shine;
    yet all are one in thee, for all are thine — Alleluia!

    And when the strife is fierce, the warfare long,
    steals on the ear the distant triumph song,
    and hearts are brave again, and arms are strong — Alleluia!

    But lo! there breaks a yet more glorious day;
    the saints triumphant rise in bright array;
    the King of glory passes on his way — Alleluia!

    From earth’s wide bounds, from ocean’s farthest coast,
    through gates of pearl streams in the countless host,
    singing to Father, Son, and Holy Ghost — ALLELUIA!”

    Extra hugs on this difficult day. The Princess sends her most soulful looks and gentlest wags.

    • Oh, i have loved that since we did it when i was in junior ohai–the junior and senior high kids did that as a joint piece. Ralph Vaughan Williams sure could write! Sine Nomine is the tune–Without Name because someone thaought the tune to be too secular. But oh, my, that’s a lovely piece of music. The service went very well today—there was much joy as well as some tears. I am tired, but i am so glad he is free! Thank you, dear heart.
      Love you bunches! —janey
