If you must bury something, let it be my faults, my weakness and any prejudice against my fellowman. Give my sins to the devil and my soul to God. If by chance you wish to remember me, do it with a visit or kind word to the family or someone in need. If you do this, I will live forever.

I would rather have a little rose from the garden of a friend than the choicest flowers when my story on earth shall end. I would rather have the kindest words and a smile I can see than flattery when my heart is still and life ceased to be. I would rather have a loving smile from the friends I know are true, than tears shed around me, when the world bids me adieu.

Memorials can be made in loving memory of Nancy to the Horton Wreath Society.
