Obituary

The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want.  He maketh me to lie down in green

pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters.  He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in

the paths of righteousness for his name's sake.  Yea, though I walk through the valley of

the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they

comfort me.  Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou

 anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over. Surely goodness and mercy shall

follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the LORD forever.

Psalm 23
