Remembering Nancy

Today I'm remembering a very special friend that left this life just as it was begining for her. She was the neighbor girl Nancy. She was very smart and had just graduated from high school in May. She was in a car accident on Sept 18, 1989. She was hit by a drunk driver. I worked for her parents at the church camp they ran. I always remember her as almost another sister I had. She was the same age as my sister. She loved the color yellow and loved yellow roses.



I remember when she learned to play the piano. One of her favorites was this song by
LIONEL RICHIE. Everytime I hear it I can see her playing it and singing so beautiful. I can remember when it was played at your service on the piano just like you did. I heard it a couple days ago and thought of you.

"Hello"

I've been alone with you
Inside my mind
And in my dreams I've kissed your lips
A thousand times
I sometimes see you
Pass outside my door
Hello!
Is it me you're looking for?
I can see it in your eyes
I can see it in your smile
You're all I've ever wanted
And my arms are open wide
'cause you know just what to say
And you know just what to do
And I want to tell you so much
I love you

I long to see the sunlight in your hair
And tell you time and time again
How much I care
Sometimes I feel my heart will overflow
Hello!
I've just got to let you know
'cause I wonder where you are
And I wonder what you do
Are you somewhere feeling lonely?
Or is someone loving you?
Tell me how to win your heart
For I haven't got a clue
But let me start by saying I love you

Hello!
Is it me you're looking for?
'cause I wonder where you are
And I wonder what you do
Are you somewhere feeling lonely?
Or is someone loving you?
Tell me how to win your heart
For I haven't got a clue
But let me start by saying I love you

Today I remember your life and miss you so much. I look forward to the day when I will see you again in Heaven.

Love you Nancy so much May 13 , 1971 - Sept 18 , 1989

Nice thoughts of a friend who has gone on before us. Isn't it funny that certain things remind us of our loved ones who have passed on into eternity ahead of us.

Have a great day.

Caroline...I am sending you {{hugs}} as you remember your sweet friend who has gone on before you. It is so hard.

We leave on Monday to go to Arizona to the memorial service for our friend Max. We have been friends for over 30 years. We will miss him so very much.

Friends are truly gifts from God! He helps us to live on without them...by his grace.
