She was so full of life and always had a smile on her face. We pray that she is at peace in heaven. Annette and Stan Fowler, February 24, 2011 I was blessed in knowing Nancy. She was an individual with one of the most beautiful souls, that I ever knew. This poem is dedicated to her memory. "I Will Never Be Far Away" copyright 2005 John J. Rigo, excerpt from "Roses Amidst Thorns" Book I of the "Amidst Series of Poetry Books." I will never be far away, no matter where you are. My heart will always be with you. Never will you have to seek, to find me, for I will always be, as close as your heart. There is a special place for you and me. A place that will never go away. Where each day is made for you and me. Each day, a part of an eternal string of pearls, as we love, and laugh through each setting sun. Rising together, each morning with a song upon our lips. Singing of our love for one another, through this eternity, and all others, to follow. John J. Rigo, February 21, 2011 Fred, we were so sorry to hear of the passing of Nancy. I know that this is a great loss to you and we pray the GOD will give you the peace that passes all understanding during this time of grief. If we can be of any help please let us know.
