    "I don't know about tomorrow, I just live from day to day.  I don't borrow from its sunshine, for its skies may turn to gray.  I don't worry o'er the future, for I know what Jesus said. And, today I'll walk beside Him, for He knows what is ahead.  Many things about tomorrow, I don't seem to understand; But I know who holds tomorrow, and I know who holds our hand."  Heartfelt Sympathy to you, Dorinda and Family.  Humbly, Jean Hamilton
