And I stopped beside a Sunday school
And listened to the songs they were singin'
Then I headed down the street
And somewhere far away a lonely bell was ringin'
And it echoed through the canyon
Like the disappearin' dreams of yesterday. The Lord replied, “The years when you have see only one set of footprints, my child, is when I carried you.” Mary Stevenson 1936 Garryle, Nocona, me, Jarred, and your family and loved ones are the only ones that know the truth and have earned the right to honor you here. Those handcuffs by your side are your symbol of victory having apprehended your killer.
