It is never easy to lose a dearly loved one but remembering the good times may help your grief. I am thinking of the Ballantine family in these sad days.

You’ll see her in the clouds above,
Hear her whisper words of love,
You’ll be together before long,
Until then,
Know all our memories will never be gone,
Listen for her song,

Love you Nan
