Oct.20, 2013

I know that the month of October has to be a stressful time for Nancy's family. Just two days ago celebrating her birthday, her family all around her and then two days later she joins her family in heaven. Both are celebrations, but we here on Earth mourn her departure while the family in Heaven rejoice that her time with them is finally here.
On the 3rd anniversary of her passing let us be with her family on Earth to help them to understand and remind them that when our time comes we will see her again.

Wishing Nancy a Happy Birthday

we know her family and friends celebrate this day as well.

My mom has made me laugh... Wiped my tears... Hugged me tight... Watched me succeed... Saw me fall... Cheered me on... Kept me going strong... And... Drove me a little crazy at times.. But moms are a promise from God that you will have a friend forever!... 
I Miss my MOM this is the first Easter without her and my Brother!!
Nancy K.

At 3yrs " Mommy I love you." At 10yrs " Mom, whatever." At 16yrs " My Mom is so annoying." At 18yrs " I wanna leave this house." At 25yrs " Mom you were right." At 30yrs " I wanna go to Mom's house." At 50yrs " I dont want to lose my Mom." At 70yrs " I would give up everything for my Mom to be here with me." You only have 1 Mom. 
I love you Mom

Today Nancy's son Noble joined her in heaven. Before Nancy passed she kept asking Noble to take her home. He said "Mom you are home" But she meant a different home. She went and now she greets him in heaven.  As the Brown family prepare his resting place, I prepare a place for him here in Life Ever After.  Noble A. Brown

We pray that you are filled with His peace and His joy and know that Mrs. Irish has heard the Father say, "Well Done."
We rejoice in her memory but are here for all of you in your sorrow.
We love you all with Jesus Love

To all of Nancy's family. 
Please know that our prayers are with you. It has been many years since I have seen your Mother but I remember when I was a young teenager and she would come to visit us waking up and finding her sleeping in my bed, recovering from the long drive to WV. She had a wonderful sense of humor and I always enjoyed her and Noble's visits. You will be in our thoughts and prayers during this difficult time.
May God bless and comfort you.

Mum will be missed by so many. She touched so many lives and was that little bit of fire that everyone needed at times. She was so loving, kind, blunt, honest and strong. So many qualities that made her so admirable.
Peace to you all and comfort in the knowledge that she is wrapped safely in the wings of angels and is watching over each one of you.

Love to you all.
