Safely Home!

I’m safely home, my Dear Ones! I’m so grateful, no more fight! There is perfect joy and beauty in this Everlasting Light. All the pain and grief are over, every restless yearning’s passed. I am now at peace forever, safely Home again at last. Dear One, do not grieve so sorely, for I love you dearly still. Look beyond Earth’s shadows; pray to trust Our Father’s Will. When your work is completed, you, too, will return Home. Oh, the joy of that reunion when I see that you have come!

What a Friend We Have in Jesus

! ! ! ! ! !

Joseph M. Scriven Charles C. Converse

This is but a

Stopping Place !

This is but a stopping place, A pause in what's to be, A resting place along the road To sweet eternity. We all have different journeys, Different paths along the way, We all were meant to learn some things, But never meant to stay... Our destination is a place, Far greater than we know. For some the journey's quicker, For some the journey's slow. And when the journey finally ends, We'll claim a great reward, And find an everlasting peace, Together with the Lord.

! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! !

! ! What a friend we have in Jesus, All our sins and griefs to bear! What a privilege to carry Everything to God in prayer!

Oh, what peace we often forfeit, Oh, what needless pain we bear, All because we do not carry Everything to God in prayer. Have we trials and temptations Is there trouble anywhere? We should never be discouraged; Take it to the Lord in prayer. Can we find a friend so faithful Who will all our sorrows share? Jesus knows our every weakness; Take it to the Lord in prayer. Are we weak and heavy laden, ‘Cumbered with a load of care? Precious Savior, still our refuge Take it to the Lord in prayer. Do thy friends despise, forsake thee? Take it to the Lord in prayer! In his arms he'll take and shield thee; Thou wilt find a solace there.

Fear not, for I am with you; Be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous Right hand For I, the LORD your God, Hold your right hand; It is I who say to you, “Fear not, I am the one who helps you.�

Isaiah 41:10, 13

For everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven: a time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up what is planted.

Ecclesiastes 3:1-2

Obituary

Nancy Ellen Walton (nee Collins) was born into eternity on Tuesday, June 25, 2013, after an extended illness. She entered this life on January 16, 1955, to Emojean Ellen Coiley and Caesar Collins, joining two siblings, Richard and Suzanne.

Nancy is a graduate of Proviso West High School in Maywood, Illinois, where she was an excellent student. In 1979, she married Gerald Frank Walton. The union produced three children: Sean, Todd and Chèri, who became the center of her world. The circle expanded when they presented her with three grandchildren: Aarik, Aaliyah and Taylor. She showered them with love and care, and they absolutely adored her. Besides family, Nancy’s other passion was her church, Rock of Ages Baptist Church in Maywood, where she rarely missed services. She also enjoyed gardening and crocheting She was there for my first breath, and I was there for her last... I’m blessed to have been guided by your spirit for the last 30 years and look foward to your guidance for the next 30 and forever more. May your earthly body be forever at rest, with no more pain. I love you, Mom. Todd

During more than three decades with the United States Postal Service, she held a number of positions, culminating as a senior marketing analyst. Nancy is survived by her children, her sister Suzanne Bonner (George) and brother Richard, her uncle Carlos, nieces Thazzarra and Michelle, nephew Brian, and a host of beloved relatives and friends.


Mom, Words will never be enough to express the love and appreciation I have for you. As far back as I can remember, I know you always wanted the best for me and you made sure that I always had the drive and motivation to succeed. I ALWAYS brag and boast about how beautiful, fabulous, intelligent and strong you are. Being a mother was so incredibly natural to you, so I thought it would be easy not knowing it took a certain type of spirit to be so patient. Even though I’m stubborn, I listened to everything and I followed all of your advice. We will meet again, and I will see you later Mom. Love always, Chèri
