A poem that Nancy was fond of was On the other side of death. Death is a gateway, we must all pass through, to reach that fair land where the soul’s born anew. For man’s born to die and his sojourn on earth, is a short span of years beginning with birth. And like pilgrims we wander until death takes our hand and we start on our journey, to God’s promised land. A place where we’ll find no suffering nor tears, where time is not counted by days, months or years. And in this fair city that God has prepared, are unending joys to be happily shared. With all your loved ones who patiently wait, on death’s other side to open “the gates”. By; Helen Steiner Rice
