Sweet Angel Momma Nellie

Linda Parks Owens 1952 (Rockingham, NC) – 2012 (Rockingham, NC)

We wait for her next message to come down from the sky.
Our angel momma Nellie is always ready and willing to fly.
She brings love and wisdom to us each and every day.
Brushes us with her wing tips as we kneel down to pray.
As we look up toward Jesus with our eyes cast up above
Nellie arrives to guide us on gently with her tender love.
Nellie soar up to Heaven with your beauty that is so rare.
And rest there with Jesus on soft clouds peaceful and fair.
Knowing you walk with the angels makes our heart sing.
Thank Jesus in Glory for the happiness and love you bring.
