Floy Aderman and “Whispering Hope”

July 19, 2017

Ferdinand Adermann > Carl Aderman m. Floy Bates Aderman > Oscar Aderman > Roger Aderman

I was reading through a booklet of family stories which included this from my Uncle Roger. It got me imagining him as a boy playing piano for his Grandma, Floy (Bates) Aderman. Here is what he wrote:

Grandma’s favorite hymn was Whispering Hope. When I was a boy I took piano lessons. Whenever Grandma and Grandpa came to Niagara I’d play that song several times for Grandma.

The song, written by Septimus Winner in 1868 is now in the Public Domain. Here is a link to a YouTube video with Jim Reeves singing this gospel classic.
