Performed by Charlotte Church
Clyd a chynnes ydyw hon;
Cariad mam sy dan fy mron;
Ni cha'dim amharu'th gyntun,
Ni wna undyn â thi gam;
Huna'n dawel annwyl blentyn,
Hua'n fwyn ar fron dy fam.

Huna'n dawel, heno, huna,
Huna'n fwyn, y tlws ei lun;
Pam yr wyt yn awr yn gwenu,
Gwenu'n dirion yn dy hun?
Ai angylion fry sy'n gwenu,
Arnat ti yn gwenu'n ôl dan huno,
Tithau'n gwenu'n ol dan huno,
Huno'n dawel, ar fy mron?

Paid af ofni, dim ond deilen
Gura, gura ar y ddor;
Paid ag ofni, ton fach unig
Sua, sua ar lan y mor;
Huna blentyn, nid oes yma
Ddim i roddi iti fraw;
Gwena'n dawel yn fy mynwes
Ar yr engyl gwynion draw.
Suo Gân
Welsh Lullaby
Mother's arms with love caressing
Lay their blessing on your rest.
Nothing shall tonight alarm you
None shall harm you, have no fear,
Lie contented, calmly slumber
On your mother's breast, my dear.

Here tonight I tightly hold you
And enfold you while you sleep.
Why, I wonder, are you smiling
Smiling in your slumber deep?
Are the angels on you smiling
And beguiling you with charm.
While you also smile, my blossom,
In my bosom soft and warm?

Have no fear now, leaves are knocking,
Gently knocking at our door.
Have no fear now, waves are beating,
Gently beating on the shore.
Sleep, my darling, none shall harm you
Nor alarm you, never cry.
In my bosom sweetly smiling
And beguiling those on high.

James David Reid
died on April 2, 2018 at 43 years of age.

It only takes one turn in fate to change the entire journey...  He leaves behind his loving wife Tara and
her three children Shaylinn, Chandler and Charlie, his beloved daughter Jessica, mother Patricia
Bachert (Kim), father Alfred Frank Reid III, devoted sister Nicole Avallone (Chris), niece Avery, nephew
Logan, grandmother Dorothy McDaniel, uncles David and Kenneth Gindlesberger and John Reid, Aunt
Betty Reid and several cousins.

Born in Detroit, Michigan June 26, 1974 and upon his retirement in 2016 settling in Kingston, Georgia.
However, because of his military career many places along the way became his home.
At a very young age James enlisted in the Army and served in Korea, but he found his true calling in the
Coast Guard with most of his career devoted to search and rescue which included rescues in the Bering
Sea of Alaska to both Hurricane's Rita and Katrina. He pursued many endeavors throughout the way
including becoming a pilot.

James was part of an honor guard many times while in the Coast Guard and now a service was held in
his honor on June 1st beginning at 1pm at the Sarasota National Cemetery Followed by a celebration of
his life at 269 Bearded Oaks Dr, Sarasota, FL

A living is made by what we get - A life is made by what we give ....  
James had a smile for everyone and was a friend to all he met.
