    That Land
    By Bro. Willard Thomas

    Many mansions grace that land
    Beyond life’s endless shifting sand;
    Between the crystal life-giving streams
    And the street of gold that ever gleams,
    Waits there our mansion fair and bright.
    In a beautiful land where there comes no night,
    In a mansion that Jesus will provide,
    We will leave this sin-cursed weary land
    And go on home to Heaven’s fair strand.

  3. I’m so sorry for the family’s loss! I always loved being around Ralph and Shirley, and we’ll all miss him greatly! Ralph helped my family out in ways unknown to most. We’re praying for the family to be comforted.
