Nancy Fern (LISCUMB) LANKTREE
-In loving memory of our dearly beloved and most cherished sister Nancy Fern (LISCUMB) LANKTREE, who passed away on July 29, 2000 after a courageous battle with brain cancer. She is sadly missed by her sisters Lois and Mary and brother, Harry. To our beloved, we will always remember what cancer cannot do...
It cannot cripple Love,
Shatter Hope,
It cannot corrode Faith,
Destroy Peace
It cannot kill Friendship,
Suppress Memories,
It cannot silence Courage
Or invade the Soul.
It cannot steal Eternal Life
It cannot conquer the Spirit.
A sister's love, her goodness, her caring and her wisdom
is a legacy of love that always lives on.
It will live on through us and we shall cherish it always.
