Today I left my loved ones and as I go I pray, Lord don't let them grieve too much, because I've died today. Let there be no wailing echoing the halls, the same halls that held love, laughter and answers to my calls. I pray they all take comfort accepting the true way and listen when I tell them these three things today. Love will be forever, a promise that will last. So love me more than ever now my time with you has passed. And last of all remember the glowing love to be, when our eyes meet once again, for all eternity. Nellie will be dearly missed and forever in our hearts.
