(Dedication to my grandmother who passed
away yesterday & read at her services today)

You left us a legacy of love,
with the grace of a dove.
You showed us how
and said the time is now
to comfort and give.
You told us, this is how we must live.

The material world wasn't our place,
it was Heavenly Father we were to embrace.
So you showed us this by sharing,
loving and caring.

You left us with a model in mind,
showing us how a marriage should bind
two souls together, as you and Bill
now together upon that hill.

You left two children upon this earth,
that has given this world enomous worth.
We, your decendants all love you much
and we'll miss you a whole bunch.

We know you stayed as long as you could,
for you did all that you should.
Now your in peace in the arms of the Father,
God Bless You Nettie, Grandma, and Mother.

A very lovely tribute to a very special person. I'm sure she would have loved it.
God bless you and comfort you during this very hard time.

Thank you Denise. She was a lovely person.
She had a long, full life.
