    Life Story for Nancy Dennis

    "I will always be with you"

    The day has come to utter see you later, never good-bye,
    Hold your head up family, Its okay to cry.
    I'm not gone for good,
    You will see me again.
    I have gone home to my father
    where my life just begins.
    Dont ever think our heavenly Father is being unfair,
    He tried to make everyone well aware.
    When I was born in this world,
    I was not yours to own,
    My Life with you was only a loan.
    I have graduated from earth
    with the highest degree,
    I majored in life and death
    And now I am free.
    Accept my last certificate
    with honor and be proud of me,
    Always remember this was meant to be.
    I love you all my dear family and I know that you love me,
    I will always be with you spiritually,
    You have been there for me,
    And now I must travel alone.
    I will be waiting to greet all of you
    when its your time to come home.
