Ina Christina Steele-Dixon

Ina Christina Steele-Dixon was Lela's mother. She wrote the poem below and inserted it in a letter to Grandma Lela shortly after Grandpa Ralph Carver and many of his family members died in a plane crash.

God Of Love

Oh God of love forgive, forgive
Teach us how to truly live
Regardless of our race or creed
Help us in our hour of need
Some day man may realize
All the earth and sea and sky
Belongs to God who made us all
The rich, the poor, the great and small
In our father's holy sight
No man is yellow, black or white
And peace on earth can not abound
Until we meet on common ground
And every man becomes a brother
And worships God and loves each other
