I pray that I may live to fish......
Until my dying day.
And when it comes to my last cast,
I then most humbly pray:
When in the Lord's great landing net
And peacefully asleep
That in His mercy I be judged
Big enough to keep.
A Masonic Service followed by an Eastern Star Service were held on July 8th in the morning with the funeral at 2 p.m. in the Digby Baptist Church, officiated by Rev. John Dickinson. Interment at Woodlawn Cemetery. Donations in memory of "Dick" may be made to Digby Baptist Church.
