Michiana Singing

Fairview Grange, Goshen, Indiana

Saturday, July 18, 2020

The officers of the Michiana Singing cancelled the event in 2020 due to the pandemic, but would like to call to mind those persons who would have been remembered in our memorial lesson. Persons’ names submitted for the sick and shut-ins list include Barry Rollins, Ricky McGraw, and all those isolated in their own counties, states, and countries who would have so loved to be singing today—with special thoughts for those living alone. Names submitted for the deceased list are Velton Chafin, Ruth Daniel, Mark Hyatt, William Napier, Ottis Sides, Irene Kerr Snow, Margaret Spurlock, Bill Windom—Alabama; Steve O’Leary—California; Aubrey Barfield—Florida; Richard DeLong, Norma Mincey, Bentley McGuire, Robert “Bobby” Rivers, Charlene Wallace—Georgia; Karen Hojnacki—Illinois; Helene Rice Perkins, Tierre Williams—Kentucky; Dorothy Crawford Connor—Maine; Bill Beverly—Michigan; Sonny Erwin—Texas.

We pray to God for all who suffer in body, mind, spirit, or estate, and we remember those whom we love but see no longer. Rest eternal grant unto them, O Lord, and let light perpetual shine upon them.
