Prayers for peace and comfort
God is beside you
and has carried you along the way
after 63 years of tears, He wiped them all away.
You faded from our sight as you stepped on
. Your pain has left never to be no more.
Sadness fills our hearts as we say our good
Redness on our faces as tears fill our eyes.
Two boys and two girls you had along the way
a mothers love that never fades away.
I hope you were at peace as god took you home.
Now you set by god on his golden throne .
As he opens up the book and read from its
, He sees a mothers love that never fades away.
You wore many hats in this old life Once all
You were a daughter, to your mother,
A sister to you brothers and wife to your husband
in life. A cousin , a mother , grandmother and
friend to all.
Two sets of wings could be heard as angles
carried you home.
Casting shadows in he foot prints you left in the
As they held your hand they carried you home.
Now that your setting at the foot of god
you shall never be alone.

Kelli and Family, please accept my dearest thoughts and prayers with the loss of Tissy. I am so so sorry Kelli, believe me when I say, "I really do know exactly how you feel honey". I know how dearly your Mom will be missed be so many family and friends that loved her. She touched so many lives with her beautiful smile and cheerful positive attitude. Larry Nivens Sr (Pa) talked fondly of her. I pray that the Lord wrap His arms around the entire Family with His love, peace and understanding. Lean on one another and Christ and it will help a lot. Tissy has left an amazing legacy and that in itself is a blessing. I wish that I was in town to give you a shoulder or a least a big hug Kelli. But know that you all are in my thoughts and prayers. Love you
