I must go down to the seas again, to the lonely sea and the sky,
And all I ask is a tall ship and a star to steer her by,
And the wheel's kick and the wind's song and the white sail's shaking,
And a grey mist on the sea's face and a grey dawn breaking

I must go down to the seas again, for the call of the running tide
Is a wild call and a clear call that may not be denied;
And all I ask is a windy day with white clouds flying,
And the flung spray and the blown spume, and the sea-gulls crying.

I must go down to the seas again, to the vagrant gypsy life,
To the gull's way and the whale's way where the wind's like a whetted knife;
And all I ask is a merry yarn from a laughing fellow-rover,
And quiet sleep and a sweet dream when the long trick's over.

Gloria was a member of Kempsville Church of Christ. She loved and served the Lord with all her heart. She was a wonderful wife and mother, devoted wholly to her family. Cooking was a favorite pastime and she spent many joyful hours in the kitchen preparing delectable meals (in large quantities) that were generously shared with family and friends. Her home was always filled with mouth-watering aromas of something simmering on the stove or baking in the oven. Her crispy fried chicken, homemade biscuits, collard greens seasoned with salt pork, dumplings, and baked sweet potatoes satisfied many a palate craving good "country cookin'." Coconut, carrot, and vanilla pound cakes often beckoned from the counter.  It was her heart's delight to have everyone come together to partake of good food and fellowship. Her expertise at preserving the abundant fruit and vegetables harvested from the bountiful garden so lovingly tended by Henry, resulted in a well-stocked pantry and freezer. Gloria will long be remembered for her faith, hospitality and generosity. A funeral will be held at 10 a.m. Saturday at Kempsville Church of Christ by the Rev. Randall and Josh Childress. Burial will follow at 4 p.m. in Mount Carmel United Methodist Church Cemetery, Manns Harbor, N.C. The family will receive friends at 2360 West Road.

Austin will probably be succeeded by Thos.
