Nancy is fondly remembered as being a very kind and gentle soul to everyone. Don't grieve for me, for now I'm free; I'm following the path God laid for me. I took his hand when I heard Him call; I turned away and left it all. My life's been full, I savored much, good friends, good times and a loved one's touch. Perhaps my time seemed all to brief, don't lengthen it now with undue grief. Lift up your hearts and share with me, God wanted me now, he set me free. I'm in your heart, I'm in your memory, but I'll be there with open arms, when we meet again. My love to all of you.
