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 Potluck Celebration will be held at 1 p.m., Saturday, June 18, 2022 at the Black Canyon Park, 5555 E Black Canyon Highway Emmett, Idaho.
