In the May Morning Dew

This afternoon, although I didn't stay long, was the annual memorial service at St. Stephens in Greermount.  It's literally in the middle of nowhere, but where so many of our ancestors settled.  Indeed, I had family that helped build this church.  But what was most beautiful at this service was the unexpected voice of a friend of mine, who stood and sang, "May Morning Dew," A Capella.  There wasn't a dry eye in the house!  So unbelievably fitting for the moment of talking of days gone by and the spirits of those long passed.  It was really amazing and I hope we hear lots more!
