A soul sent to heaven, on wings from above,

accompanied by angels, surrounded with love.

She never would falter, through strife and through pain;

she knew time would come soon, to be with Jesus again.

A painstaking journey with Bob by her side,

caring for her daily – a job he did with great pride.

This life’s mission is over, a new one’s begun,

look to the stars, feel the warmth of the sun.

As we say good-bye to Nancy, Wife, Mother and friend,

it’s never good-bye, it’s till we see you again.

With great love,

Bob, Debbie, Robert, family and many friends
