In Loving Memory
Nancy Jean Johnson
1939 — 2014
I’m Free
Don’t grieve for me, for now I’m free
I’m following the path God laid for me.
Nancy Jean Johnson
September 6, 1939 — August 8, 2014
I took His hand when I heard Him call
I turned my back and left it all.
I could not stay another day
To laugh, to love, to work or play.
Tasks left undone must stay that way.
I’ve found that peace at the close of day.
If my parting has left a void
Then fill it with remembered joy.
A friendship shared, a laugh, a kiss.

Oh yes, these things I too will miss.
Be not burdened with times of sorrow.
I wish you the sunshine of tomorrow.

My life’s been full, I savored much,
Good friends, good times, a loved one’s touch.
Perhaps my time seemed all too brief.
Don’t lengthen it now with undue grief.
Cassi Skog, Brynn Johnson, Callie Besaw
Lift up your heart and share with me.
God wanted me now, He set me free.
