God looked around his garden And found an empty place. He then looked down upon the earth, And saw your tired face.
He put His arms around you And lifted you to rest. God’s garden must be beautiful, He always takes the best.
He knew that you were suffering, He knew that you were in pain. He knew that you would never Get well on earth again.
He saw the road was getting rough And the hills were hard to climb. So He closed your weary eyelids And whispered “Peace be thine.”
It broke our hearts to lose you But you did not go alone… For part of us went with you The day God called you home. Author: D. W. MCCONWAY
Condolences from family and friends

My deepest condolences to all of those that were lucky enough to meet Nancy and have her touch your life in one way or another. And also my heart goes out to all family and friends.
Nancy to me was a great treat to come into my work. She would come in with Barbara or her late husband Johnny and would always be smiling and talkative. She always made me feel good about my day.
I will miss you.
