Dear Palermo Family & Friends,

I am so sorry for your lost, you have my deepest sympathy. My heartful prayers are for you doing this time. Nancy will be truly missed, but rest assured that Nancy is resting in peace for now.
Please find comfort from the bible promises that there is real hope for our loved ones who have fell asleep in death. Please enjoy the following passages where these promises are made: Isaiah 26:19, Job 14:15, John 5:28, 29 & Acts 24:15. Nancy will awaken to wonderful conditions in the future unlike now, conditions that Revelation 21:3,4 promise no sickness, mourning, pain or death
