NANCY JO "WELLS" RUTHERFORD

We Miss You Dearly



We Miss You
Mom

God looked around His garden
And found an empty place.
He then looked upon the earth
And saw your tired face.

He knew that you were suffering.
He knew you were in pain.
He knew that you would never
Get well on earth again.

It broke our hearts to lose you
But you did not go alone.
For part of us went with you
The day God called you home.

Your Passing Has Left A
Void In Our Lives
